Animal ID: 17-071Primrose (female)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Primrose is fostered in Martinsburg, WV through United Yorkie Rescue http://unitedyorkierescue.org. Primrose is a 6 yr. old 7 lb. Yorkie girl who came into rescue in April 2017. This sweet girl came into rescue in extreme poor health and has been making a comeback that could be labeled a miracle. When her foster mom picked her up in April, her entire body was covered in thick, hard, rock-like grey scales that were cracked and bleeding. Her ears were infected and her eyes were small insets with limited vision. She had a yeast infection all over her body, and on her first day, she showed signs of a neurological issue. In terrible pain, she ... (Read More)struggled to get the rest she needed. But through all of this terrible suffering, Primrose is the sweetest, most affectionate girl fully trusted her foster mom and vet, and freely gave kisses. Primrose, only 6 yrs. old has had a less than fair life. She survived life in a cage, and has been diagnosed with cancer. Her symptoms are stabilizing for now through the wonderful care of her foster mom and vet. Her thin skin that would break and bleed has thickened and her rapid weight loss when she first came into rescue has not only stopped, she's managed to gain back some weight. Her once cracked bleeding skin now has hair. She'll never fully get her hair back, but that's ok because she likes being a diva with sweaters and fashion statements that keep her warm. Her grave health condition prevented her from getting a dental cleaning until June, and she's still on medication fighting infection. Primrose is so sweet and affectionate; she's had an outpouring of support from the United Yorkie Rescue volunteers, and from the UYR support network. This girl is more than deserving of being the queen of her own castle, living a comfortable life with love, warmth and compassion, and a place to call her final home. This sweet girl needs someone who understands she will need ongoing support, good health care, quality food and all the love in the world showered on her. She will need a quiet home and other furries that love and accept her, but let her go at her own pace. Small children, large dogs and expectation of playing, and long walks are not in this girls future. To complete an application for Primrose, go to http://unitedyorkierescue.org. Or if you'd like to support this sweet girl, please consider making a donation to her care. (Less)

Animal ID: 17-186Henry (male)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Henry is fostered in Martinsburg, WV through United Yorkie Rescue http://unitedyorkierescue.org. Henry is a 3 yr. old 13 lb. Yorkie (maybe Silky?) boy who came into rescue with his brother Cooper in September. We've been referring to the boys as Huck and Finn since rescue because they've certainly been on an adventure since a kind lady found them walking down a rural road on Memorial Day. The kind lady diligently exhausted all avenues to find the boy's owner but with no luck she gave them a home all summer. After several weeks the boy's rescuer contacted UYR. With some planning and several volunteers along the way, the boys traveled from ... (Read More)Alabama to their foster home in WV. We've determined Cooper and Henry must be adopted together. Henry has more energy and Cooper is reserved. They're very affectionate and crave time with their humans. Cuddle time are priority for these guys. The boys get along with dogs and cats, and are house trained after they get settled. A fenced yard will be a must for these boys. Henry and Cooper will be looking for a home where someone is home most of the time. Older kids (no young kids please) are OK for these boys. If you think you have the right home for these gorgeous boys, complete an application at http://unitedyorkierescue.org using the left side Navigation menu. (Less)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Ophelia is fostered in Martinsburg, WV through United Yorkie Rescue http://unitedyorkierescue.org. Ophelia is a precious 8 yr. old, 9 lb. Morkie girl (Yorkie and Maltese mix) who arrived in September, and we've been calling her Fifi for short. Ophelia is a stray who ended up in a local shelter and no one came for this sweet girl. The shelter vet found a grade 5 heart murmur on their evaluation and immediately called UYR for help. Fifi is awaiting a plan for her heart condition; the vets believe Fifi will do well with medication. Ophelia gets along with all other dogs and cats and she's housetrained. It's only been a short time but she is ... (Read More)adapting well to her environment and loves being in the yard and also loves going on walks. This little girl is going to be the perfect addition for some lucky family. Ophelia has been loved her whole life and now has a happy future.

Animal ID: 16-228Marley (male)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Marley is fostered in Martinsburg, WV through United Yorkie Rescue. http://unitedyorkierescue.org Marley is an 11 yr. old, 4.5 lb. Yorkie boy, who came to United Yorkie Rescue in Dec. 2016. Marley came to United Yorkie Rescue after his owner died. It was quickly determined that he was a very sick boy. After fighting for his life with pneumonia, he still hasn't recovered fully and we continue to assess his needs. He's great with all dogs, children, and has never met a stranger. He's house trained to go outside but is also pad trained. Marley is such a character. He definitely believes that he is the protector of his foster family. This boy ... (Read More)is fearless. At 11 years old, his little knee gives him some trouble getting around but everyone watches out for him. He needs doggy steps, a helping hand, and sometimes just some extra time to get up. He lost his teeth due to severe decay down to his jaw (the infection probably lead to the pneumonia), but he had no trouble eating. His little tongue sticks out and he had to re-learn his favorite activity, lots of kisses. Now he twists himself around just right to kiss every dog and human he can reach. Marley will need a very special home where he's safe (no small children and large dogs) and provided the care and assistance he needs. If you're interested in adopting this amazing, little man, complete an application at http://unitedyorkierescue.org. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Yorkie in West Virginia
    Yorkie Dogs can make good pets in West Virginia 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 West Virginia 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 have been popular ladies' lap dogs for many years.
