Animal ID: 17-051Ella Claire (female)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Ella Claire is a 9 (estimated) year old, 4 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Clarksville, TN. Ella just arrived in rescue today and it is has been a very eventful day for this tiny princess. Unfortunately for Ella Claire, she wound up in a shelter at the stage of life when she should be spending her days in someone's lap getting nothing but love and belly rubs. We don't know many specifics about Ella Claire's past but we have seen cases like Ella Claire all too many times. She is not spayed, and unfortunately Ella Claire has multiple mammary tumors on her chest wall. While we can't know Ella's history for certain, most intact ... (Read More)senior females who have come into UYR with mammary tumors were used for breeding purposes. We feel there is a very good chance that Ella's life before rescue was spent making lots and lots of puppies. Ella Claire also has an enlarged heart, a nasty cough and a mouth full of badly neglected teeth that are in dire need of a dental. Unfortunately, tiny little Ella Claire has a list of medical issues that is larger than she is. That is the bad news.....now for the good. Ella Claire's foster Mom came riding into the shelter today and scooped this tiny fur-ball up and took her straight to the Vet. Ella was overjoyed to be 'sprung' from her cage and smiled and danced with delight all the way to the Vet on her Freedom Ride. The Dogtor laid out all of Ella Claire's medical issues to her foster Mom and was soon whisked to the back room for chest x-rays to check for evidence of malignancy. Foster Mom waited, worried and prayed there would be some good news. When the staff and Ella Claire returned to the exam room those prayers had been answered because the x-rays showed only a slightly enlarged heart and a tiny bit of fluid her lungs but were otherwise completely normal. The Vet feels that a little bit of diuretic and some medication to improve Ella's heart function will take care of both of these problems. The next step on Ella Claire's road to recovery will be a biopsy to sample tissue from the largest of her mammary tumors. She will have a much-needed dental at the same time as her biopsy and we feel sure she will wake up with a few less teeth. If Ella Claire's biopsy is benign, she will need to have her tumors removed. She also needs to be spayed so this tiny girl is looking at multiple surgical procedures. If the biopsy is malignant then we will do everything we can to keep this sweet girl the best quality of life possible. Ella Claire's medical care will be costly and any support to help us cover costs would be very much appreciated. If you can help us, please go to our website www.unitedyorkierescue.org and locate the Looking For Love link on the left hand side of our home page. All dogs are listed in alphabetical order by state. Scroll down the page to Tennessee and located Ella Claire's Bio and photo. There is a PayPal button directly beneath. Positive thoughts, prayers and sharing of her story are also needed and much appreciated. Ella will need to get through all of her surgeries and have time to recover before she can be adopted.

Animal ID: 17-033Mooshey (male)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Updated Bio 3/10/17 Mooshey is a 10-year-old, 12 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Nashville, TN Mooshey has had a busy 2 weeks! You may remember, Mooshey is blind but we didn't know why. Since he came to us, Mooshey has been to see the doggie ophthalmologist twice! The first time, they felt that Mooshey's blindness was likely due to a form of retinal degeneration. However, they noticed that Mooshey had a curious 'head tilt' and wanted to make sure this wasn't a sign of any neurological problem so Mooshey's next stop was at the doggie neurologist office. He had a thorough exam and no unusual findings were found so it was decided ... (Read More)that Mooshey's blindness is indeed from retinal degeneration. This is a fairly common condition in Yorkies and you can read about it by searching on PRA (progressive retinal atrophy) in canines. The good news is that Mooshey is used to being blind and he does great with it. The bad news is that there is really no treatment for this condition and that Mooshey will be living the rest of his life as a blind boy. But please....do not feel sad for this sweet fella....being blind does not hold him down ONE BIT! He is a bundle of pure love! Mooshey is a bit on the chubby side so his foster parents have him on a healthy weight reduction diet and have enrolled him in Yorkie ZOOMBA! (just kidding about that last one folks but we do think he would look ADORABLE in tights!). Mooshey also has a condition called KCS or chronic dry eye and he will need to have eye drops for the rest of his life. He will also need follow up at the Vet to have his eye pressure readings monitored a couple of times a year as sometimes dogs with retinal atrophy will go on to develop glaucoma. Mooshey just needs a dental and he will then be up to date on his care and is ready to start the search for his forever home! If you think you are Mooshey's perfect human please apply to adopt him today or email his foster parents for more information! Also, Mooshey's specialist care has been pretty expensive. We'd love it if anyone is able to help us cover the cost of Mooshey's care. You can do that by navigating to our website www.unitedyorkierescue.org and clicking on the Looking For Love link located on the Blue Ribbon on the left-hand side of our home page.

Animal ID: 17-032Rusty (male)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Initial Bio 2/12/17: Rusty is a very sweet, 9-year-old, 11 pound Yorkie boy being fostered near Clarksville, TN. Rusty came to us from an owner who could no longer care for him. Rusty has food allergies that took a lot of time and expense to diagnose. Rusty's first owner gave up on him and was going to have him put to sleep. He was first rescued by a kind woman who could not stand to see that happen. She invested a lot of time, love and expense on Rusty to get to the bottom of why he lost almost all of his hair and was continuously scratching. That took lots of testing, food trials, medication and patience. Then Rusty's ... (Read More)rescuer became ill herself and was suddenly physically and financially unable to care for him. She did the most loving thing and reached out to UYR to make sure that Rusty would continue to receive the special care that he needs and that a wonderful (and hopefully final) forever home for Rusty would be found. Rusty must be on prescription dog food for the rest of his life and he must go to a home where they have the discipline to allow Rusty to have THIS FOOD and ONLY THIS FOOD. When Rusty gets anything other than his prescription food his food allergies return immediately and he becomes ill. His prescription food costs about $35 for an 8-pound bag. Rusty also has a heart murmur and he takes medication twice daily for this. You can expect to spend about $50 a month on his food and medication at present. Rusty needs someone who will monitor his skin condition consistently and make sure he doesn't 'sneak food' from any other pet's (or human's) bowl who also has the financial means to provide for his medical care. Rusty is super sweet and affectionate. We think he would do best with a stay at home mom or dad. He is house-trained but he needs to go out every 2-3 hours. He likes to ride in the car and is a good traveler. Rusty needs to get his immunizations up to date and have a well dog check as his last immunizations had to be placed on hold to allow for his skin to heal and make sure that the source of his food allergies was properly identified. We feel that all that is behind him now and he will see the veterinarian soon to get him current on his immunizations. We think he will soon be ready for adoption so if you think you are the PAWFECT person for Rusty go ahead and submit an application for him. We would also appreciate any help towards Rusty's ongoing care. You can help us by visiting our website www.unitedyorkierescue.org and clicking on the link called 'Looking for Love.' All dogs are listed by state in alphabetical order so scroll down to Tennessee and you will find Rusty's Bio there. Thank You! (Less)

Animal ID: 16-142Molly (female)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Molly is an 11 year old, 5 pound sweet, little Yorkie girl. She is being fostered in Nashville, TN. UPDATED BIO 1/17/17 2017 was a much happier New Year for Molly than previous years. Molly has taken some time to settle into the good life in her foster home. She came to us in August, yet this sweet girl still struggles with the residual effects of living almost all 12 years of her life in a Puppy Mill. Since her rescue, Molly has learned that not every hand that reaches for her has a cruel intent. While she does not like for anyone to touch her head, ears or mouth, she will allow belly rubs and loves to cuddle in her special blankets ... (Read More)and have lots of nap time. Molly has recurrent skin and ear infections and is missing most of her teeth. She also has bilateral luxating patellas (dislocated knee caps) that cause her to have a somewhat unsteady gait so that she wobbles quite a bit and takes a while to steady herself when walking. Due to her age and general low activity level it is felt that surgery to correct them would not be a good option for Molly. Molly has very limited vision and is likely functionally blind. We feel that her hearing is also not the best. Molly is not currently and will most likely never be able to be fully house trained. Her foster family continues to work with her but when you consider that she spent 12 years going 'potty' in a cage it is easy to understand. Given Molly's physical and sensory limitations she simply needs a home that can offer her unconditional love, support and a cozy place to nap. Molly can only be considered for an adult only home where her person is content to spend lots of time at home with her. Molly hates being in a car and gets car sick easily along with becoming very anxious. Additionally, Molly must go to a home with a fenced in yard or area because Molly will not allow you to put a collar or leash on her. We realize that not everyone is seeking to adopt a senior dog with multiple medical and emotional issues. We know that the right person for her is out there; it will just take time for them to emerge. However, you can still help Molly a great deal by donating towards her continual care and ongoing recovery. Molly has had lots of specialist visits, recurrent ear and skin infections and a full neurological workup to rule out serious non-age related illness. All of that carried a hefty price tag of nearly $1200. To date we have collected $140 in donations and we are so grateful for every penny. Please help us get a little closer to meeting Molly's expenses if you are able by clicking the PayPal button below. Every little bit of support and love you send Molly's way ensures that her care will be fully-funded, so that UYR can continue to take in other unfortunate Yorkies just like Molly. UPDATED BIO 12/09/2016: Hi Yorkie Lovers, It's me - Molly! I've been with my foster family since August 2016. I've had a long, tumultuous journey. The majority of my life was volatile. I was rescued from my life at a puppy mill, where I was expected to deliver liter after liter of sweet puppies for them to be heartlessly taken away from me and sold for profit. The small dog rescue that helped me out of that deplorable situation did not do their due diligence, because I was eventually adopted to a family that could not offer me the love and support I needed, so I ended up on the streets where a neighbor found me and contacted the United Yorkie Rescue. 11/08/2016: Molly came into United Yorkie Rescue in August. Prior to being with her foster family she lived the majority of her life in a puppy mill, where she was forced to produce litter after litter of puppies to be sold for profit. Molly was eventually rescued by another small dog rescue, but unfortunately they did not vet her adopters. They decided they didn't want her so she ended up homeless until a nice neighbor took her in. Despite their love for Molly they were unable to give her the time and care they knew she deserved! When Molly arrived at her foster home, she had severe dental disease and a terrible yeast infection on her skin. She has had two dental surgeries and received a lot of medicated baths and anti-fungal treatment. After several more vet visits, her foster family learned that she has two dislocated knees, which causes her to lose her balance, fall, and run into things. Because of her tumultuous life, Molly is very skittish and apprehensive! She loves to cuddle, nap, and eat! (What lady doesn't?) Molly can't be leashed because she is scared of anyone or anything coming near her face, head or body in anyway. It will cause her to cower and squeal. This is the same for diaper and a collar and a harness. She can't bear anything that will have to go around her head or near her face. This could have to do with how long her mouth hurt her and although it has been fixed, she is still very protective of that area. Molly loves treats, loves to eat, and likes to go outside. She needs to go o (Less)
