Animal ID: 15-013Honey (female)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Update 01/27/15: Hi all, Honey here. I saw the dogtor tonight, who estimates my age to be about 7 years old. He gave me my shots & took some blood. He said I need to wait a little while to to be spayed since I came out of heat, so I'll hang with my foster family for a little while, which is ok with them because I'm so darn sweet! Fill out an app if you want to be first in line for the process to adopt me, & stay tuned for another pupdate! Initial Bio 01/26/15: Hi, my name is Honey...because of my golden color and because I'm sweet as sugar! I'm 10.5 pounds, & a long, slender, beautiful girl. I was found running the streets, filthy, and ... (Read More)almost hit by a car when a good Samaritan stopped & saved me & turned me into UYR. I'm now fresh & clean, but I need quite a bit of vet work. I need shots, to be spayed, checked for heartworms, & mostly, I'm in very bad need of a dental. My teeth are almost completely covered in plaque & tartar, my breath is awful, & my mouth hurts so bad I can't chew my food. Foster mom says this means my vet bill will be really high & I probably will have to have some teeth pulled, but that I will feel much afterwards. It will be a few weeks until I can find a new home, but I'm very sweet, laid back, like to carry soft toys in my mouth, & my favorite is sleeping in fluffy dog beds. So far, I appear to be housetrained too. I won't last long with all these great qualities, so fill out an application now so foster mom can start reviewing them for when I'm ready to go home! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-10-00460Triscuit (male)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    A Triscuit a tasket who wouldn't want this guy in their basket! Meet Triscuit, a handsome and sweet 5 year old male Yorkie/ Cairn Terrier mix. His foster told us this about him: Triscuit is the most calm, reserved, docile dog I've been in the company of. From day one I was amazed at how quiet and content he is to curl up next to myself. He hardly makes a sound. I've had one visitor/stranger come meet him and he was protective of his environment and didn't warm up immediately to the visitor. He would likely do well in a quiet home with single adult or couple. When it has been me and him he likes to curl up on couch and doesn't require a lot ... (Read More)of attention. He sleeps soundly throughout the night in my bed. He is potty trained very well and usually needs two to three trips outside per day. He has stayed in his crate well all day for 8 hrs at a time. I'm thinking he would likely do well even if he isn't crated and alone. He does well on a leash and likes to explore his environment. He loves belly rubs and will hop on hind legs for his treats. He has mastered 'sit' rather easily. If you want a low maintenance loyal companion then Triscuit is for you. Triscuit's adoption donation is $95. (Less)

Animal ID: 13-187Madeline (female)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Update 08/10/14: Hi!! Maddie checking in!! I've been a little quiet lately but Thought I better check in. I've been having a little trouble with allergies & my knees. My back knees have grade 4 luxating patellas. The top bone is curved one way & the lower one the other way so surgery is not an option. Both of my kneecaps sit out of the groove where they should be. So to make up for it I walk with my knees slightly bent. I have a little trouble with stairs so I would need a home with very few stairs. I am a really good quiet girl & prefer a good nap to going for a walk or playing. I think a nap is calling me now!! Foster Mom just fed us & ... (Read More)washed all our blankets so I will talk to you soon!! Update 06/02/14: Miss Maddie has been doing well. She is a very sweet girl. She was skin & bones when we first got her & weighed only 4.7 lbs. Since having all of her badly infected teeth removed & the fistula from one of her canines had made a hole all the way through to her sinuses. That has healed & since her spay she now weighs 7.7 lbs. We may have to put her on a diet. Since gaining the weight she is a happy girl but her back knees are permanently bent because of a probable genetic defect. Her little short legs have a little trouble getting her up the stairs. She would do best in a home with adults that are home most of the time. She does not like a crate & would prefer to be by your side all of the time. A fenced yard would be best for Maddie also. Maddie is 6-8 yrs. old & weighs 7.7 lbs. Her favorite activity is napping by your side & she loves a good squeaky toy. Update 02/06/14: Miss Madeline is wishing everyone a Happy Valentines Day. Madeline is doing good & is not really enjoying all of the cold & snow. She is 6 years old & now weighs 7 lbs. Since being spayed & having all of her rotten teeth removed she is enjoying life. She was very thin & you could feel all of her ribs,spine, & hip bones. She had all of her teeth removed. They were very infected & she still has a fistula into the nasal cavity because one of her teeth was very infected. she is healing well & enjoys soft food. she has filled out nicely & loves her person very much. She attaches very quickly to people & follows her FM everywhere. She would love to find someone who is retired or works from home. She needs a fenced yard & would probably do best with an all adult home. She likes other dogs & I'm not sure about cats. She is not a barker & is pretty calm & laid back. She loves the life of a pampered lap dog!! Maddie would like to thank Bridget & Chelsea for finding her & helping her get to UYR so she can have the life she has always dreamed about!! Update 12/10/13: Madeline 5-7 yrs old & 4.9 lbs. Maddie has been spayed & had a much needed dental. She lost all of her teeth. Probably due to lack of care & a very poor diet. Her teeth were very infected at the gums & the bone. she had a fistula by one of the upper canines that were removed. Maddie will soon be recovered & looking for her dream home. She hopes to find an all adult home with someone that is retired or works from home. A fenced yard is a must. Please no small children as she is very small & timid. Maddie is a real sweetheart & would love to have someone to cuddle with on the cold snowy winter nights. No more wandering as a stray for this sweet girl!! Initial Bio 12-01-13: Madeline (Maddie) Is 6-7 years old and weighs 4.6 lbs. She was found as a stray in Arthur,IL. Arthur has many Amish puppy mills so it is thought that she came from on of them. Maddie was lucky; she was found by some wonderful caring people and kept safe warm and fed until she could come to UYR. She is a real sweetheart who would do best in an all adult home with no small children that live there or visit. She needs someone who is home most of the time to give her the love and attention she has missed out on in life. She will need to be spayed and have a much needed dental. She is quite a snuggler and loves to follow her foster mom everywhere. She will soon be looking for her furever home. If you are interested in Maddie please fill out an application. (Less)

It has not effected her willingness to play and run all about with the other dogs. She can go up and down stairs but can't get on or off furniture. Adorable 12 pound, very happy, friendly, scruffy coated, long bodied, short legged girl about 1.5 years old. She is current on vaccinations, ... (Read More)spayed, heart worm tested negative and on prevention, plus microchipped. She has been in a kennel for awhile waiting to be a part of a family. We have not had her loose in the house much so are not sure if she's housebroken. She is use to going potty outside so would be easy to housebreak if she isn't already. She is crate trained and very quiet unless she needs out to potty. She's a confident outgoing girl who plays great with both male and female dogs who are also playful. She really doesn't know any commands but would love someone who would like to teach her some fun tricks. Vet's phone number you use currently or in the past is required to adopt for a reference. We have 30 rescued dogs of all sizes all praying for a real home! Please do not consider a dog for Christmas unless you want a dog as a family member for its whole life. (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.
