Animal ID: 17-027Spencer (male)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Spencer is a 6-7 year old,15 pound Yorkie boy being fostered near Memphis, TN. UPDATED BIO 2/19/2017: Whew! You guys I have had a crazy few weeks and boy am I tired! I was living in West Virginia up until this past Friday. You see I had a mommy at one time who loved me lots, but she had to go on this thing called deployment. Since I couldn't go with her I stayed with a neighbor friend. While I lived with him I developed a bad skin infection and severe dental issues. Two weeks ago I was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue in West Virginia. I received a much needed haircut along with dental work. My hair had grown so long around my mouth ... (Read More)that my hair got stuck in between my teeth along with food and dirt. When I went to see the dogtor he had to remove 14 of my teeth! He also said that I didn't have to be neutered whatever that is because it had already been done. Once my teeth and hair got the all clear a nice woman drove me all the way from West Virginia to Memphis Tennessee! I am now in my foster home where I LOVE it! I adore my two fur foster sisters and the couch is my all time favorite! My foster mom says I am such a good boy and I never have accidents in the house. I tell her when I need to go outside and I sit and stay whenever she asks! I am a complete and total love bug and enjoy just laying next to my foster mom. She also says that even though I don't have some front teeth I can still eat any and every treat she gives me! I enjoy just going with the flow and soaking up love! All adoptions through United Yorkie Rescue require a Veterinarian Reference, 3 Personal References and a physical Home Visit. Zen's adoption fee is $250 and includes all Vet care, dental, immunizations, spay/neuter, micro-shipping and registration to new owner's name. Initial Bio: Spencer was originally owned by a woman in the military. When she was deployed, she gave Spencer to a neighbor, who then gave him to another neighbor who ended up losing her home. Spencer thankfully found his way into rescue and needs some major dental work. (Less)

Animal ID: 17-028Sophie (female)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    UPDTED BIO 02/08/2017: Meet Sophie, a sweet senior female who weighs 7 pounds and is 14 years old. She is being fostered in Ashland City, TN. Sophie comes to UYR from an owner who has had her for the last 10 plus years but had unexpected life circumstances that meant that they were no longer able to keep her. Today is a tough day for Sophie as it is very difficult to make major life changes at her age. She has been been waiting by the door for her person, bless her heart. Rest assured everyone at United Yorkie Rescue and especially Sophie's foster Mom will do everything in our power to make Sophie feel welcomed and loved while ... (Read More)we search for someone SUPER SPECIAL to live her for the rest of her life. We want to BE VERY SURE that Sophie's next home is PERMANENT. Sophie is shy but super sweet once she gets to know you. Her former owner says she is fine with other dogs and older children but Sophie has never been around cats so we aren't sure if she is a feline fan. Sophie is house-trained and up to date on her care except that she needs a dental cleaning which has already been scheduled. Sophie needs that very special someone to adopt her that loves the gentle spirit and mellow personality of a senior dog. She would do great with an older person who is looking for a special lovable fur-friend to to cuddle with and trade belly rubs for puppy kisses and while away the hours. We know that Sophie is advanced in years but she is actually quite healthy for her age by Vet accounts so there is no reason to believe that Sophie won't be around for a few more years. If you think you are Sophie's PAWFECT PERSON then please apply to adopt her today. Also, we'd be most grateful if you would help us cover the cost of her senior care by going to our website www.unitedyorkierescue.org. On our home page there is a blue ribbon on the left hand side with links . Click the link Looking for Love. All dogs are listed in alphabetical order by state.

Animal ID: 17-033Mooshey (male)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

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

    Initial Bio 02/11/17 Mooshey is a sweet, 10-year-old, 12 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Nashville, TN. Mooshey came to us from an owner who could no longer care for him due to their own medical issues and reached out to UYR for help. We believe that Mooshy is blind. We will have him further evaluated to be sure. He is currently being treated for an eye infection and when that is resolved we will have his vision re-tested. We believe that he has a condition called KCS or Keratoconjunctivitis sicca. This is a very long word that means chronic dry eye. This condition results in inflammation of the cornea and surrounding tissue and ... (Read More)without treatment, it leads to blindness and extreme discomfort. We don't know if we will be able to salvage any of Mooshey's sight but he will likely need daily eye drops to prevent discomfort for the rest of his life. We will know more on this after he evaluated by our veterinarian. For now, Moe is functionally blind and he needs to be in a safe environment that doesn't have a lot of steps and levels to navigate. Mooshey is a very sweet and snuggly guy. He is housetrained and ok with other adult dogs. One thing Mooshey is not a fan of is car rides. Mooshey gets anxious and car sick in a vehicle so if you are a fan of traveling with your pets he is probably not a good fit. He would probably be okay for occasional travel if you plan in advance and arrange for your veterinarian to prescribed some motion sickness prevention for him but the less travel the better. Mooshey isn't a huge fan of young children so an adults only home is a must for this sweet boy. We think Mooshey would do great in a small, single story home with a least one stay at home human. If you think you are Mooshey's perfect forever person please apply to adopt him today. If you can help us with Mooshey's Vet bills please go to www.unitedyorkierescue.org and click on the link labeled Looking For Love. All our dogs are listed in alphabetical order by state.

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)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-16-00234Sassy (female)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sassy is a 3 yr old yorkie mix. She is good with other dogs, cats, and children over 10. She was abused by unsupervised younger children so is more relaxed around older/gentle children. She is spayed, vaccinated, wormed, microchipped, curremt on frontline, and heartworm negative. Sassy is house broke and crate trained. She's a silly girl who loves to smile. She has flea allergies so must be kept on flea preventative. She also requires a grain free diet and does not need table scraps.

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-18-00249Molly (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)

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.
