    Kristy is a beautiful 12-year-old, 8 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Cordova, TN. All adoptions through United Yorkie Rescue require a Vet check/reference, personal references and a home visit. Kristy's adoption fee is $100. Kristy belonged to an older woman who passed away. The remaining relatives kept her for a time but were too busy to give Kristy the time and attention she deserves so they reached out to United Yorkie Rescue for assistance in finding her a new forever home. Kristy is such a little love. She is adjusting well to her new life in her foster home. She loves her fur siblings and is just an absolute doll. ... (Read More)Kristy likes to sit on the sofa with her foster mom and dad and her foster sisters. She loves to cuddle and sit in a nice warm lap. Kristy is healthy and up to date on her care but could benefit from having her teeth cleaned. She will have that done this week. After that, she will be ready for adoption. Kristy would do great with someone who is home most of the time and would like a sweet, beautiful snuggle bug to spend lots of time with. Kristy needs some help and patience in the house training department and is working on that in her foster home. Please don't pass Kristy by because of her age.

    Razie is a 3 year-old 14 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Byrdstown TN. Razie's adoption fee is $300. All adoptions through United Yorkie Rescue requires a Vet Reference, personal references and a home visit. Razie is SUCH a handsome boy! He came to use with some confidence issues that resulted from his past life. You see, Razie came from hoarding situation where he lived with almost 70 other Yorkies. This poor guy then spent nearly an entire MONTH in a shelter situation before United Yorkie Rescue received a call for assistant to help him. That must have been a very traumatic time for Razie as he came to us scared of just ... (Read More)about everything. He is make huge strides and is getting better every day. He sleeps with his foster mom and the moment he gets up in the morning he rolls on his back and kicks up his feet and then licks her hand in appreciation for the good life she has shown him. He does a happy dance before he eats in the morning that makes his foster mom and dad laugh. He has been going for morning walks and absolutely loves it. New experiences do still scare him but his foster parents are working with him to alleviate his fears. Razie has the cutest under bite and looks like he is smiling. His potty training is complete as he follows his foster dogs out into the fenced yard and hasn't has any accidents in the house. Razie is still hesitant and prefers to keep us at arms-length but will let us pick him up when necessary. He does take treats from our hands so it will be only a matter of time before he totally trusts humans. Razie is a wonderful dog and a pleasure to foster and there is no doubt he will make an awesome pet for a special person. Razie is very anxious around children so an adults only home would be best for him. You can email Razie's foster mom for more information at (Less)

Animal ID: 15-144Willow (female)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed 

    Updated Bio 3/4/2016 Willow is 8 years old, weighs 13.3 pounds and is being fostered in Ashland City, TN. Her adoption Fee is $200. A Veterinary reference, 3 personal references and a home visit are required for adoption. Willow has had some rough breaks in life. She was a breeder female who had many litters of puppies before she came to us. She developed mammary tumors and her former owner surrender her to us because of this. In our care, Willow had surgery to remove the tumors. Fortunately, the tumors were benign and now Willow is past all of that and should go on to live a full and happy life. After Willow's surgery her ... (Read More)foster Mom noticed that she had a pattern of rapid breathing and would sometimes become anxious as if she could not breath well. United Yorkie Rescue had Willow evaluated by a pulmonary specialist and as it turns out, Willow has chronic bronchitis which has gone untreated her entire life until coming into rescue. This condition is very similar to asthma and means that Willow needs to have medication daily. She takes Flovent (FLUTICASONE PROPIONATE) twice a day through her little doggie inhaler. She is very used to this and does not mind at all. The treatments are not difficult to perform and do not take very much time to administer. The biggest issues with her medication is the expense. Her inhaler meds currently cost about $125 per month if bought though a U.S. pharmacy. However, these are due to go off patent sometime during 2016 and when this happens the cost of her medication should decrease substantially. You can order her medication through a Canadian Pharmacy for about a 25-50 % cost reduction. Anyone considering adopting Willow must have the financial means to afford her medication as she will need to be on it for the rest of her life. Willow is just the sweetest little girl EVER. She is so gentle, mellow and loving. She gets along great with other pets in her foster home. She loves all people and has never known a stranger. Her favorite thing is to give her person non-stop kisses. Willow is not a fan of being crated or trapped in a small area and this makes her very anxious. We think this is likely due to her days as a breed dog. She likes to have full run of the house so a person who is home a lot would be perfect for her. Willow had issues with house training when she came to us. She has been working super hard on this in her foster home and has made huge progress. However, if she isn't taken out frequently she can still have 'accidents.' For this reason, her foster mom will put a diaper on Willow if she has to leave her for a few hours. Willow's best fit for a home would be one where someone is home with her a lot. She is not a huge fan of traveling in the car but she does okay when car travel is necessary. She needs someone who has the time and financial means to administer her twice daily medications and to take her outside frequently for potty breaks. The most important thing Willow needs is a dedicated person who will love her for the rest of her days. You will NEVER find a dog sweeter than Willow. She so worth the effort and expense! You can view a special message from Willow here: We have gotten all of Willow's medical needs addressed but we are still paying for the care she has already received. If you would like to help us with the cost of Willow's care it would be SO APPRECIATED! Please go to her Your Caring page at Updated Bio: 1/06/2016. Before being taken in by United Yorkie Rescue, Willow%BD'%BD%BD'%BD'%BD%BDs life consisted of nothing but having litter after litter of puppies. When she got here Willow had many medical issues that needed to be addressed. She had several mammary tumors, severely damaged teeth%BD'%BD%BD,%BD'%BD%BD and really bad ear infections. United Yorkie Rescue has since had her mammary tumors removed successfully, her dental needs addressed%BD'%BD%BD,%BD'%BD%BD and resolved her ear infections. However, we still noticed that Willow had a very rapid respiratory rate and was having difficulty breathing at rest. She also didn't seem to have much energy. Willow has been to see a respiratory specialist and after additional tests it was discovered that Willow suffers from chronic bronchitis. The good news is that this condition is manageable with daily medications. Since beginning treatment, Willow has become a new dog! She was already sweet and loving, but now she has more energy and runs around and plays like a puppy! Willow is looking for a forever family who is home most of the time and is willing to administer her medications twice a day to keep her healty for remainder of her life. In return Willow is willing to provide all the love and attention and kisses you can handle! Willow adores all humans and animals. She never meets a stranger. Willow deser (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Yorkie in Tennessee
    Yorkie Dogs can make good pets in Tennessee 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.
