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. I did do some marking when I first came into the house and m Mommy said I always do that when I first get to a new home or visit but then I stop so we will see what happens and if I will need work with that. Well my foster Mommy said .around 7 I found a toy I wanted and I calmed down a lot. She say's I bark for everything I want and I am going to start my crate training since I am still marking. I was barking while in my crate and per my Mommy I was never in a crate before, I was always blocked in the kitchen. My foster Mommy stayed with me for the night then later we all went into the bedroom where I slept on the bed and was so very happy to be snuggled under the blankets. The rescue and my foster are going to fatten me up as I am a tad underweight for unknown reasons. . June 27th 2015 Wall so far today no marking!! I'm doig really god and getting along better with the other pups, you see I am active for an older dog I act more like a puppy then I do a 9yr old and my partners in crime are not use to my energy level. I decided I don't like the food my Mommy left for the rescue and I am not eating the other dogs food but I will eat treats and s coupe scraps so it is not due to nerves. We will see what happens in the next coupe of days. . June 29th 2015 Well I am still not eating but a few pieces of the food Mom left or the food the foster family eats which may be why I am underweight. My foster family pups are getting use to me and I have calmed down much more since arriving. So far no marking and foster Mommy is keepin a close eye on me, I don't even stop to sniff the spots I marked in anymore. . July 1st 2015 Well I am not eating the food and foster Mommy tried some samples and FINALLY I found one I liked and will eat. It is a bit expensive but the rescue w (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-25-00073Oliver (male)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Cancer,

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] [Read About Natural Cancer Care] oliver is a fluff Yorkshire terrier. I rescued him about 4 years ago. Unfortunately my health has declined and I need to find him a home ASAP. I will not start my medical treatment until I find him a home. He is a lovable lap dog or will just lay at your feet. He likes to take short leisurely walks on the leash. He is potty trained. I crate him when I leave the home and at bedtime. When I received Oliver I felt lumps under neck. The previous owner said her vet told her the lumps were from bad teeth. I took Oliver to my vet who biopsied the nodules. It came back that he had ... (Read More)lymphoma. They told me without treatment (chemo and radiation) he maybe would live 2-6 months. I opted to forgo any treatment. Oliver is very alive without treatment. He does not act sick. Our vet calls him our miracle dog. She said it is very rare for any animal to survive lymphoma. Within the last 2 months Oliver has started having seizures. He was started on phenobarbital (can get for $11 thru CVS pharmacy). His seizure activity is controlled 100%. If you have any other questions I have not addressed here please ask. I want to find him a nice owner and home. He deserves it. (Less)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Update 05/26/15: Hi everyone, it's me, Cleo reporting from Shiloh, Illinois. I'm sorry I haven't written in so long. We've had lots going on here. I've had a couple different tests since last time; one to see if I had something besides kidney disease, but that came back negative. I also got more kidney level labs & they were elevated. We will have to get them again soon & keep a close eye on them. I'm still on my prescription food & doing better with eating since I've been getting fluids. You'd never know I was having kidney problems by looking at me, because I'm so happy & sweet. I love to snuggle, lay in laps, sleep in bed, & follow ... (Read More)everyone everywhere. I'm also housetrained, despite my condition. I will need a very special home that will have the ability to care for me as my condition progresses, keep me on a strict diet, & who has a quiet loving home. If that's you, please email my foster mom or fill out an application to adopt me on our website. Update 04/02/15: 4/1/15: Cleo is an 8 pound, 12 year old owner surrender who came to UYR with her sister Honey Bee when her owner had to give them up due to a changing family circumstance. When Cleo went in for her dental, her bloodwork showed elevated kidney levels. Since we do not know how long this condition had been going on, she has been put on a restricted diet and we will repeat her labs in a month to get a better idea of where she stands as far as her kidney failure. If she is to be adopted after her follow up labs, she must have a stay at home parent, remain on her vigilant diet, and she would like a quiet home with no kids and no young dogs to bother her. Cleo loves to lay in your lap, sleep on pillows and in her doggy bed on the bed. She is 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 mom (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. 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.
