10/29/18 - Because of Bodie's fearful trust/biting issues, he will only be able to be adopted close to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, so visits can be established to help him adjust to new surroundings.

7/2/18 - Well, it's almost the 4th of July and we would like to introduce you the little firecracker of YHR currently. Bodie was surrendered by his previous parents, who had him as a puppy, because they travel alot and Bodie is not great with having to meet new people all the time. He thinks it is his job to protect. I know he is small, but he packs a punch and a bite. If his people are holding him, he doesn't like for someone to come up and pet or take him from them. He goes all Napoleon-like. Other than that, he is awesome. He is a sweet little guy who loves his people once he gets settled and isn't afraid. He has been at his foster home now for a little over a month and he is fine with the other dogs in the home, although he doesn't play with them, and he loves his foster mom and dad. It took him a little bit to get over the shock of moving to a new home with new people, but once he settled and knew he could trust, he hasn't stop being a happy boy playing with toys non-stop. He loves squeaky toys. It's like having a baby around the house when it's time for bed and you have to walk around picking up all the toys and putting them back in the baskets so it can start all over the next day.

Bodie has a high-pitched bark and isn't afraid to use it if someone comes over or he sees someone pass outside walking or riding a bike. Again.... protector. If someone comes to the house, all they have to do is ignore Bodie and after a little while, he will quit barking and not be focused on them anymore. He is tiny, so quick movements from new people scare him. Even with his bouts of fear, he is cocky. Big dog in a small body. He is loving and freely will give kisses and let you hold him.

Bodie cannot go to an apartment or condo that is connected to another home. He will also need a fenced in back yard because he loves to run around and chase the birds off making sure they do not get too close his home. He needs to go to an all adult home since children tend to raise the activity level in the home and the more active the environment, the more Bodie acts like a Rottweiler.

He uses the steps to get up an down off the bed and will sleep in the bed sometimes and then other times he retires to one of the dog beds. He likes to have his choices. He does well with his potty habits when brought out enough (tiny bladder), but will probably mark his territory at first. The belly bands worked great and he did not mind them at all.

So, if you are looking for a small dog with a big bark, bite and heart. A little tyke that doesn't like an active home with alot of visitors and owners that know his limitations and are ok and make the situation with meeting new people safe for him and the humans, please fill out an application.

1/12/19 - IíVE BEEN ADOPTED!

12/14/18 - Buster... Chiefly Midlandís definition of Buster is ďsomeone or something extraordinaryĒ. EXACTLY!! Since Iíve entered Yorkie Haven, Iíve been told by multiple people that they donít know how someone could give up such an awesome baby. Seems I have a demeanor everyone loves.

I was surrendered by my family when they felt that they were too busy and didnít feel that I was getting the attention I needed. Well, I am now!! Iím temporarily living in something called a foster home with a stay at home dog mom and I have other fur-siblings as companions. I donít really play with any of them, but co-exist great. I was previously an only dog, but would be ok in a home with another calm dog. I absolutely adore attention from humans and am an awesome guy. Donít let my age fool you, I act WAY younger than I am.

I love to just sit with my people and am one of those yorkies that is ALL ABOUT YOU. I like to be held and give the best kisses and am even content just sitting next to you. Iíve been told that I am comforting to have around. I havenít wanted to sleep in the human bed yet. Foster mom is trying to figure out if it was because I was never allowed in the human bed, or if this particular human bed just has too many other fur-children in it. Whatever the reason, I sleep perfect in my comfortable dog bed in the bedroom. Iím a great eater and just love my treats.

I will play with toys some, but arenít one of those dogs that is squeaking a toy non-stop. I do well with my potty habits, but when foster mom runs errands, she will be a belly band on me. But when she is home, I get to run around naked. Lol

I can jump up and down to sit in the chair or on the sofa with you, but would need steps if I decide to sleep in bed with my new mom and/or dad. I donít have a problem barking when the other dogs do or if the doorbell rings or just if I want your attention. But I donít talk all the time.

To sum me up: Iím sweet, affectionate, loyal, have a great sense of humor and am a good listener. Iím looking for a serious relationship with an individual or two with the same traits.

As William Edward Hickson once said, ďIf at first you donít succeed, try, try again. Well, I didnít succeed with my first family, so, Iím trying again.

12/28/18 - Carly had her follow-up on her legs with the specialist on 12/18 and he said that he is very pleased with the outcome. She is walking like a champ and she knows it. Now she is scheduled on 1/7/19 to have her two remaining teeth extracted and get her microchip and then Ms. Carly will be ready to pack her bags and move into her permanent home.

***Carly had surgery on her back legs. Any donations towards her surgery will be greatly appreciated!***

*** DON'T MISS THIS!!!! Click on the VIDEO link under Carly's photo and see her before and after surgery videos!!!!***

11/13/18 - It has only been a little over two weeks since Carly's surgery on her back legs and, as you can see from the latest video, she is getting around like her legs are brand new. She is so proud of herself and happy to be able to walk without difficulty. She will be ready soon for her new home. We must warn you, she has a long list for Santa. This is absolutely the sweetest, calmest most awesome baby girl around.

10/29/18 - Carly was released from the vet Friday. She is doing very well and is walking on her back legs. We can already see the difference in her walk and it will get better as each day passes. Thank you to everyone who helped with Carly's surgery. We will post another video soon to show her progress.

10/25/18 - Carly is recuperating well after her surgery yesterday. She is standing on her legs, but not wanting to try to walk yet. The doctor is very pleased with the way surgery went and she should be released to the loving hands of her foster mom tomorrow. Now all she has to do is learn to work these new legs of hers and she will be on her way. Thanks to everyone who prayed and donated for sweet little Carly.


10/23/18 - Carly was found stray and brought to a local animal shelter. No one claimed her so she was released to YHR. She currently only has two teeth that will need to come out and as is shown by the video, her back legs are severely crippled. On both of her back legs, her knee caps are all the way on the inside of her legs and have apparently been this way for years because they are fused in this position. This baby has obviously walked this way for a very long time. The good news is that she saw the orthopedic surgeon today and he has given us hope. She may not be 100% after, but she is a candidate for surgery and this will give her a walk like she has never remembered. One where she isn't crippled or dragging herself to get up. We are so excited. Surgery is scheduled for tomorrow, 10/24/18, and we are ready for this to happen to get her on her way to a normal life. After her legs have healed, we will have her remaining two teeth removed.

She hasn't been with us long, so we will be watching her personality and will give a proper bio once we learn about this sweet little soul. We do know that she eats soft food very well and loves to sit in a lap. More info on what she will be looking for in a new home coming soon.

12/5/18 - As Lord Byron, the English poet, wrote as a tribute to his Newfoundland dog that had passed, "These dogs possess beauty without vanity, strength without insolence, courage without ferocity, and all the virtues of man, without his vices." The same could be said for all yorkies, but not everyone appreciates these delightful companions. Take Hannah for instance, she was found walking the streets alone by a good Samaritan. She was missing 80 percent of her hair, had teeth and breath even a mother could not love, an ear infection and had never been spayed. She was brought to the local shelter to see if anyone was missing her, but no one came to claim her. As rescue groups see all too often, we suspect her good Samaritan who brought her to the shelter claiming she was picked up stray was actually her owner who just did not want her any longer. That was fine with Yorkie Haven Rescue because when they were contacted to see if a foster home was available, they were more than happy to take in this sweetheart and do everything they needed to get her healthy and find her the family that she deserved. One that will be chosen for her to be exactly what she needs. Hannah has had most of her vetting done now. All except for a hernia repair that is scheduled for Thursday, December 6th.

Hannah gets along fine with the other pups in her foster home and has just recently started to play with Khloe who is another pup on the site in her foster home. She has a very good appetite and loves sleeping in bed with her humans. She is a very social pup and is great with everyone she meets. She will pick up a toy occasionally, and we are hoping she will play with them more once she comes out of her shell more. She does well with doing her business outside when let out often but has had the occasional accident here and there. Even though she does walk ok on a leash, she would do better with a fenced yard since she likes to run and play and lay out in the sun in nice weather.

She isn't afraid to "speak" to you and let you know she is impatient when you are fixing her breakfast or supper and has no problem barking at the doorbell even if it's on tv. She likes to be held and loves to give kisses. She is a middle of the road dog as far as personality goes. Not timid, but not fearless. Hannah isn't super clingy like most yorkies, but definitely isn't independent. She does like to know where her person is at all times and will sometimes lay in the dog bed and other times wants to sit in the chair with her human. Hannah would benefit going to a home with one or two other dogs and it would be great if they liked to play and would ask her to join in.

This about sums Hannah up. So, what are you waiting for? Don't let this gem get adopted out from underneath you. She is definitely a companion for life you will never regret choosing.

10/31/18 - Happy Halloween Everyone! I wanted to let ya'll know that I had a birthday on October 25th and am now a young 15. Please don't let that stop you from wanting to adopt me. I'm very young at heart and still need a home. If you adopt me, foster mom can give another needy dog a place to become whole again.

4/3/18 - Yes, you read it right, Iím 14 years old. However, you would never know it by looking at me and being around me. Sure, I take more naps than the normal dog. Sure, my hearing isnít what it used to be. Sure, my eyesight isnít 20/20. Sure, Iím not going to be running in any races in the near future. But, I am a sweet, adorable senior baby that loves to play with toys and has many good years left.

I had a human mom and dad from when I was just a pup. There lives changed a lot and they felt that I was not happy anymore so surrendered me to Yorkie Haven Rescue. Iím currently in a foster home with other dogs, and even though Iím co-existing ok, I was used to being an only baby and would not mind being the only baby again. I get along for the most part, but just as any granny would do, I will snip if any of the other dogs get too close to my food or get too close when foster mom is giving me attention. Iím a sassy little momma and have no problem standing my ground. I will bark when I want a treat or want to play or just to get your attention.

Foster mom says Iím doing very well in the potty department, but I will of course need someone that will let me out often. For goodness sake, I have a small 14 year-old bladder. I do my part in trying to keep my girlish figure by walking around... alot Foster mom says I am a traveler inside and in the yard.

Iím not one of those clingy yorkies in the sense that I have to be loved on or held all the time. I donít mind you holding me for a little while, but then I will wiggle to get down. I donít have to be in your lap. Iím not really comfortable in the bed or on the couch. Foster mom thinks itís because Iím not used to it, or that it makes me uncomfortable because my eyesight isnít that great. I will follow you around the house though and I do like to give kisses.

I need a laid back castle that doesnít mind me being the ruler. Someone that understands that I do get underfoot and donít like fast movements or loud speaking people. Iím active for my age and donít just sleep all day but am still a little old lady that isnít up for any of the foolishness. Iím constantly walking around smelling and playing with toys. I am a little demanding and will try to finagle getting treats with excessive barking.

I just know there is a senior home out there just waiting for me to join them and love me til the end.

12/5/18 - I've never been poor, only broke. Being poor is a frame of mind. Being broke is only a temporary situation. Hi, my name is Khloe, and my previous owner could not take care of me any longer. When I came to my foster home, I was missing a whole lot of hair. Seems that the fleas and I did not see eye to eye on where they should live, and I lost the battle. I'm on my way to some softer skin and hair now since the nice vet gave me medicine to fix me up. Once my skin is better, I will have my teeth cleaned and get some shots. Boy these people around here sure do believe in keeping up with everything. I'm not complaining though because it seems like the way to go. I don't know how they convinced the fleas to take up residence somewhere else, but I sure appreciate it.

I'm in a foster home with other pups and I am enjoying trying to get a few to play with me. Iím ten years old, but I'm really around 5 at heart. I can run circles around some of these others. I just love meeting new people and have a kiss for everyone I see. My foster mom introduced me to the bed for humans and I absolutely adore it. Who would have thought that big square thing could be so comfortable? I'm a good girl in the potty department, but foster mom does bring us out a lot. I am dog, so don't think that I won't make some mistakes.

I love my fenced in back yard and like running and chasing squirrels and getting my daily recommended dose of vitamin D. I love my people but can go lay down by myself and give my humans a break from time to time. I'm going to need a foster home with another pup or two or three to play with and a mom and dad that think I hung the moon.

There really isn't anything I can think of to tell you about myself that is bad. But then again, I'm a glass is half full type of gal. So, even though I may be broke currently because I don't have a family, I know this is a temporary situation and my fairy tale family will soon apply for me. I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving and I'd love to join you for Christmas! xoxoxo

10/31/18 - I was going to dress up for Halloween, but could not decide what I wanted to be. So I'm going trick or treating as..... a Yorkie. I know, that's smart.

Foster mom brought me to the dogtor recently because I had started to drink more than normal and was always hungry. They ran some tests and found out that I have cushings. They are starting me on some daily medication and this should help. The dogtor said that Cushings doesn't go away, but my medicine will help keep it under control. I guess with age comes issues. But, I'm still cute and smart, so if you are in the market for a best friend that just happens to take daily medicine, why don't you fill out an application for me.

Ok, time to trick or treat.

1/14/18 - I was born July 7, 2007. True to the Cancer zodiac sign, I have always naturally been in tune with my feelings and the feelings of those around me. I carry a positive friendly aura and settle well in most environments and relationships. I am very loyal and care very deeply about matters of family. This is exactly why I did not understand why after my human mom passed away, the family put me and my siblings outside to live in the backyard. This is a time when family pulls together, but apparently they did not get the memo. Thank goodness another family member scooped me up and called Yorkie Haven Rescue, so, here I am at 10.5 years old, starting over and looking for love again.

I am settling in quite nicely at my foster home. Foster mom & dad have two other furbabies and for the most part, we seem to do ok. I have to admit, I would love to be an only pet since I absolutely adore being adored and want all the attention and do get jealous. Lol, I want to be with my human all the time where ever they are. I donít start anything with the other pups, but know how to take up for myself should the need arise.

It seems the one thing my previous family knew how to do was feed me, so Iím a tad overweight. Iím on a diet now and even though this doesnít please me, Iím fine knowing that it will be better for me and my knees. I love all people and am very social with humans. I do seem to pick one person in the home to get the most attached to though. I sleep in bed with my foster parents and snuggle between foster mom and dad and it is sooo nice!

Iím doing well in the potty department, but will probably have accidents at first when I move again. Even though Iím old and a little wider than tall, I really enjoy going for a walk. If you so much as pick up the leash, Iím ready and waiting. I like to sit with and by my humans all the time. I do need help getting up and down since I donít jump so well. I tend to lose control of my licker at times. Ha Ha! I love giving kisses and, at times, will just take to licking your hand or leg if we are just sitting watching television. Itís a yorkie thing. Iím not a huge barker, but will speak if I hear something that alerts or bothers me. I have the first signs of cataracts, but see quite well.

I seem to be pretty good with all household noises except the vacuum cleaner. I try to make this a game and like to attack it. Since I need to keep the teeth I have, it might be best to put me in another room when vacuuming.

Even though I fall in love very easily with my humans, do not mistake that for me not darting out of a door if you open it without picking me up or putting me up first. I tend to have a little explorer in me and I will go explore. That being said, small children in the home with a lot of activity would not be a good idea. I also get underfoot a lot, so a human not so stable on their feet would not be a good idea either.

RECAP: I need new parents; I am very clingy; I sleep well at night; I eat well; Iíd really enjoy being an only dog or with another that doesnít need a lot of attention; I get underfoot; I am very sweet and love all humans, and I need new parents. I know I said that twice, but it is actually the most important part. So, look at this face, fall in love and apply for me! Please!

11/1/18 - I hope everyone had a successful trick or treat. I didn't get to go trick or treating since I tend to be unpredictable at times in the biting department. It's ok. I watched scary movies on tv. I'm still doing good, but need an experienced adopter that knows how to handle my type. I wont fit in just any home. You have to be seasoned for me. lol

7/14/16 - Mocha came to YHR when his previous family had to take in a family memberís children and Mocha and the children did not see eye to eye. They wanted to aggravate Mocha and he wanted to bite them. So away Mocha went. He has been with YHR since September of 2012 and reason being is that he has a special personality. He gets along with other dogs, but does have a little alpha side to him when challenged. So being an only pup for him would be great too. He likes playing with toys and loves running and chasing squirrels in the back yard.

Mochaís special personality: He is a bit quirky and deep down has a lot of insecurities that make him difficult at times. He is a fear responder. If he is in a situation where he seems to feel fear, he will bite and has done so on several occasions. Seasoned dog owners understand this and look for body language and just make sure that dogs such as Mocha arenít put in a position that would cause him to be uncomfortable. He truly needs a non-active, calm home where someone can sense his ďcujoĒ coming on when it does. Despite how this makes him sound, he is the sweetest, most loveable, most appreciative handful anyone could every want. Humans have personality quirks too, but everyone deserves the chance to be all they can be. Mocha is truly great. He just went through a lot being given up by his first owners and we think that set the precedent for Mochaís future aggression and need for consistency. Once you learn his personality and shortcomings, owning and loving him really isnít any different than any other pup.

11/11/14 - Mocha wanted to update everyone since it has been a while since his first posting. Mocha is a very sweet little guy who loves attention from his humans and would do great as an only pup. He co-exists fine with the other pups in his home, and is actually submissive, but if challenged, will stand his ground. Mocha can be misunderstood easily since he his personality can sometimes be a bit quirky. Once you learn his personality and shortcomings, owning and loving him really isnít any different than any other pup.

Mocha has some insecurities that make him sometimes come off as a bully. He is what we would most likely call a fear responder. If he is in a situation where he seems to feel fear, he will nip/bite. Seasoned dog owners understand this and look for body language and just make sure that dogs such as Mocha arenít put in a position that would cause him to be uncomfortable. Such as, we know he doesnít like children, so he will need a home that does not have children visit often. Even though Mocha loves people, he is not his loveable self in an active household or for holidays where multiple people visit. It sends his little mind into overload. So, we are looking for a quiet household where Mocha can enjoy the retirement life and not have people in and out of the house at all times. His foster parents do not put him in this predicament and if they have multiple people coming over, they put Mocha in another room until the house is settled.

I know a lot of this makes Mocha sound like a handful, but this is the sweetest, most loveable, most appreciative handful anyone could every want. Humans have personality quirks too, but everyone deserves the chance to be all they can be. Mocha is truly great. He just went through a lot being given up by his first owners and we think that set the precedent for Mochaís future and need for consistency.

He gives as much love as he gets and just needs the chance to be able to be loved unconditionally and without hesitation.

9/13/12 - I used to have a mom and dad and we had a very nice life together. I was loved, I was spoiled and then WHAM, it all came to a crashing end. Mom and dad had to take in a family members children and it seems that I am NOT a fan of children. So, seems I was asked to leave. I'm so sad, I wish I could have come to terms with my dislike for kids, but I couldn't and the house wasn't big enough for all of us.

I am now in a foster home waiting to find another mom and dad to love me. Please don't take this thought to adopt lightly because you don't know how hard it is for us pups to be uprooted. We can't speak, but we definitely hurt and have feelings.

Foster mom and dad say that I am doing well, but can tell that I have been wounded by losing my previous parents since I am so wanting their love and affection. I love being with my humans and would honestly be perfectly fine if it were just I and my parents. Other furbabies will be fine, but I really don't "play" with them much. I have tried to show my alpha side with the other male in my foster home, but foster mom thinks it is just because I'm not sure where I fit in the pack and am still trying to figure that out. Since we all sleep in the human bed, when we first get in bed, there are some cross words between he and I, but we quiet down quickly.

I love playing with squeaky toys and sitting in your lap or next to you on the sofa. My foster mom says although I'm very masculine, I have "precious, soft feet", 'cause they don't hurt her like some pup's feet do. I also LOVE giving kisses. Sometimes a little too much. WHO SAID THAT? I need a calmer household where my parents are confident in their role so I don't have to feel as if I need to rule the roost. I would really love it if somebody could be home with me most of the time. I'm working on my potty training here, and tinkle outside very well each time. I just sometimes forgot to complete my job and come back in and go no. 2. My life was turned upside down, so with consistency, I know I'll get better. I'm ok on a leash and would get better with time, but would prefer a fenced back yard to chase the squirrels and do business in.

I guess I'll wrap it up for now. It's raining here in Texas right now and 2 of the other pups are scared of the weather. Not me, I just want to take a nap by foster mom/dad, enjoy the company and dream about my new parents adopting me.

10/31/18 - Trick or treat! I know what a real treat would be. That would be for someone to want to adopt me and give me that senior home that I could be the only dog and be loved on. Foster mom doesn't believe that I every really knew love. I do enjoy belly rubs and being talked to sweet and would love to sit on the sofa and watch tv with my human. Please don't let me being a senior scare you away. I'm still cute, sweet, lovable and in need of a home.

7/23/18 - Whatís that you say honey? You are going to have to talk slower and look straight at me when you are talking to me because my hearing is on the fritz. That doesnít mean I wouldnít make a great pet, just oblivious to noises. I also have cataracts, but get around just fine. Heck, what do you expect? My estimated date of birth is 7/05 which means I just made 13. Donít be scared away by that because it doesnít mean Iím ready to check out, just ready to check into a new home that wants a senior baby to love, someone they can watch their soaps with and give belly rubs to.

I was brought to animal control by my so-called owners to be euthanized. How cold can people be? You wouldnít want your children to just ďput you outĒ once you got older would you? I wasn't really loved that much anyway. I was never spayed, my teeth were in dire need of cleaning, I had mammary tumors, a hernia, and an infection in both eyes. A sweet lady from YHR came and took me out of the cage I was in and brought me to her home. She also brought me to the vet and I have now had all of the necessary vetting taken care of. My tumors were sent off and all were benign.

I am a little old senior lady that will roll over for belly rubs. Foster mom gets my attention by letting me see her first so she doesn't startle me and that is very helpful. My foster mom has found out that I am very food aggressive, so if you have other dogs, I will need to be separated to eat or when given treats. I otherwise co-exist fine with other dogs as long as they don't want to play with me and don't bully me. This little old lady doesn't take any crap. I'm not one of those clingy yorkies. I might have wanted to be when I was younger, but when you do without for so long, you learn to live like no attention is normal. Except for the belly rubs.... I do like those.

My foster mom said that it is a shame that one of God's creatures had to go through life until the age of 13 years before finding a nice place to sleep, nice people, medical treatment and a soft touch. Well, 13 isn't the end of the road in yorkie years and I'm in the market for parents and a home to call my own. I might not be a young little tot, but I do have feelings and life left and my heart works just fine. If you wouldn't mind sharing space with an old lady that doesn't ask for much, just fill out an application.

10/31/18 - Happy Halloween! Tiny here, just wanted you to know that I am still in search of my forever home. I'm a great young man that loves his people and needs someone that is home alot. We can take naps, watch tv, go for walks, etc. I love giving kisses, being held, being talked to, etc. You get the picture, I'm needy, lol.

4/25/18 - Tiny is doing great and you would not know that he is 8 years old. He is a happy, clingy boy that loves being around his people and loves to be held. Even tries to kiss and lick his people with that cute tongue that won't go back in. lol He uses steps to get in the bed, and has to sleep under the covers right by you. He is good with a bath, trim and blow-dry and is a hearty eater. He likes to watch and stalk the birds. but definitely wants you outside with him at all times. He is an incredible little guy.

4/25/17 (BIO UPDATE): Tiny has been on the move. His foster mom is moving, so he came to another YHR foster home in Louisiana. He took the move and new surroundings great. Just a recap on him: Tinyís previous owner could not take care of him any longer, so her daughter brought him to the nearest vet to see if they could help. A foster for Yorkie Haven Rescue used that vetís office, so they gave her a call and we took Tiny in.

Tinyís teeth were never taken care of, so the ones he had left had to be extracted and he is now a toothless wonder with an adorable tongue that hangs out the side of his mouth. He still eats like a champ and we mix soft food with hard and add some water for flavor.

He is a social butterfly and LOVES ALL PEOPLE. He follows his foster mom everywhere. When she canít find him, heíll be at the front door laying in one of the dog beds looking out and getting his vitamin D. Tiny would love nothing more than to be held and carried around. He will bark if he hears something that needs your attention, but is not obsessive about it. He does fine in a home with other dogs co-existing and would do ok with cats too. He has very springy legs and can jump like a deer. Actually, he looks like a little deer with his long spindly legs.

Tiny sleeps under the covers all night. He is quite the little gentlemen and would be a great baby for any family. He absolutely thinks his glass is Ĺ full and we know there is someone out there for Tiny. Is that you?

8/14/16 - Tiny was surrendered to Yorkie Haven Rescue when his owner went into a depression over losing another one of her yorkies. She was so distraught over losing that dog that she put Tiny out on the street. Yes, out on the street. Her daughter came to Tiny's rescue and called around to vet's offices until she found one that would take him. Then they contacted one of our members. He has been in his foster home a while now and seems to be doing really well. He is a playful little tyke and loves to play tug-o-war with soft toys. He would love to sleep with his humans, but is also fine to share a dog bed with another dog in the home or one by himself.

He eats like a champ, but doesn't have any teeth. They weren't taken care of and the ones he had had to be extracted when we got him. He still enjoys scarfing down hard food, but would do great with soft or soft mixed with hard.

He is a social butterfly and loves all people. Is very clingy with his foster mom. He does pretty well with using potty pads, but will go outside as well. He absolutely loves to be in a lap. He will bark if need be, but isn't excessive with it. He is very springy and can jump like a deer.

We know someone out there is looking for this perfect little gentlemen to add to their home. He will do best with someone who stays home as he has a little anxiety with being left. Not severe, but will cry and bark upon you exiting, so someone wouldn't need to be gone for long work hours.

8/29/18 - Donít hate me because Iím beautiful. Can I help it if I am just a natural beauty? Letís seeÖ. Loss of hair from fleas? Check! Large tumor on side that has been ignored for quite some time? Check! Teeth that have probably never had a dental and are in dire need now? Check! Nails so long that they curled under? Check! Hernia that needed repairing? Check! Half glass full, sweet, loving personality? Double Check!!

Zoeyís dad brought her to the local animal control explaining that the kids were all grown up now and his wife ďdidnít want her anymoreĒ. Wow, where do I sign up to be a part of that awesome family. NOT!

Well, YHR is thankful for the call from a rescue friend reaching out for help for Zoey. She is just the sweetest baby ever. She instantly falls in love with her human(s). She is more attached to her foster mom, but foster dad is winning her over slowly when he gets down on the ground and lays with her and whispers in her ear that not all dads will bring their babies to the shelter. Zoey loves to be held like a baby over your shoulder and loves to give kisses. Zoey is a die-hard clingy baby and will follow you every step.

Zoey has been to the vet and had an over-haul. The tumor was removed and sent off and was malignant, but the great doctors got it all. She will need to be watched and if any little lumps or bumps reappear, the vet will need to check them out. The hernia was repaired, the teeth were cleaned, she is getting medicated baths and the hair is slowly growing back. Zoey is definitely a diamond in the rough and is going to make someone a very lucky person.

She is fine co-existing with other dogs but doesnít really play with them. She would probably do fine around cats but is very skittish around small children.

Look at this face and tell me you can resist.

7/5/16 Ė Bubbles is still feisty as ever. She loves to play with her foster brothers, she just isnít so sure about humans sometimes. She can be so happy and friendly with people and want attention and then all of the sudden becomes insecure and scared and snaps. Being on her prescription food and Pepcid has taken care of all her tummy issues and she seems a bit happier now too. She is prone to bite more when she is not feeling well, which is understandable since people get cranky when they do not feel good too. She needs a home that can understand her fears and handle them and it would be great if there was another dog about her size and age to play with too.

5/4/15 - Bubbles recently had some medical issues and spent a good bit of time at the vet, but after several tests it was found that she has irritable bowel disorder. She is on Prednisone, Pepcid, Anti-Nausea medicine and a prescription diet. Thankfully this has solved her throwing up and diarrhea and she is back to her happy loving self. Although she can be happy and loving and very playful, she does have the other side of her where she has bitten. When she loses her self confidence and becomes unsure of the situation she has bitten and has drawn blood. Her foster parents have learned to read her behaviors to know when this may happen and have worked around it. She does better one on one with people instead of having multiple people giving her attention. She does love belly rubs, playing with people and other pups, and exploring the back yard. She absolutely loves her prescription diet and tells you when you are not getting it done fast enough for her. Bubbles would do best in a home with young pups, no children, and people who understand her personality quarks and can let her grow and learn in a safe environment and do not mind the occasional snap when she becomes unsure of the situation or unsure of herself.

5/22/2014 - Bubbles loves chilling in a nice comfy bed or on the couch, running around the yard with the other pups yelling at the neighbor dogs, and on occasion plays with other pups in her foster home. She is an excellent eater and likes to chew on bones. She is a very loving and happy little girl. At times she gets a bit of an attitude and wants to only do what she wants to do and does not hesitate to let you know.

12/24/2013 - My story is the story of ďThe Princess to The PauperĒ

In my previous life, I was the only furchild of a single, elderly lady who loved me unconditionally. We did everything togetherÖwent to the post office, watched tv, ate dinner and slept in the bed! When my Mom passed away, I was given to her daughter and grandson to live. This is where things got a little tricky.

I had become so accustomed to my simple-spoiled life that I had a hard time adjusting. I just didnít like all the commotion associated with young people coming and going in and out of the house. I was afraid and wanted my simple, quiet, spoiled rotten life backÖas one can understand.
After two months, I was given up on, thrown out and taken to the local animal shelter. So as you can see, I went from ďThe Princess to The PauperĒ.
Things got much worse for me at the shelter because I was put into a single 4x6 room with concrete floors and cylinder block walls. I was terrified, so terrified in fact that I growled at the animal control officers and would try to bite them. They labeled me ďDevil DogĒ.

Thank goodness Yorkie Haven Rescue learned of my terrible situation and came to rescue me. I was given to my Foster Mommy in a crate and driven straight to my Foster home. Foster Mommy took me outside and let me out of my crate. I jumped straight in her lap, tail wagging, and placed a big ole wet kiss right on her nose!

Foster Mommy says I am a good girl, very loyal and protective. She also calls me an alpha female, whatever that means! I went to the dogtor the next day and had a perfectly clean bill of health. The next day we were off to the groomer to get a nice bath and haircut. Whew! I feel like a new woman!!!
In my Foster home there are two other female yorkies and a 2 year old human child, all three of which I am NOT A FAN! I would prefer to be the only baby in the house...that means no other doggies or children to take away from my attention.

If you are looking for a lifelong, loyal, lapdog- I am the girl for you!

Sending you tail wags and kisses!

1/16/19 - Ariel saw the physical therapist today at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists. They were very pleased with her progress! She is able to lift her self up with her hind limbs now and is using them better than when she first came to us. She did some time on the underwater treadmill and had other PT .. exercises and stretching. We have uploaded a video of her on the treadmill. Click on the link for videos under her photo. :)

1/10/2019 - Ariel saw the vet today and she has gained weight and is now 2 lbs! She is now 15 weeks old. She received her first puppy vaccine today. Physical therapy begins next week. We are hopeful that we can get this sweet puppy to use her hind limbs. She can get around but is using her front legs to do so.

She is developing a spunky little personality and has made friends with one of her foster mom's pups who is acting like a surrogate mom to her! We are happy about this as she was taken from her mom much too early.

1/8/2019 - Ariel will be seeing the vet this week and hopefully will be getting her first vaccination. She has an appointment next week to be re-assessed for physical therapy. She is eating well now and a happy puppy! We will post more when we know more about her therapy.

1/1/2019 - Ariel is now 1.5 lbs. She is still on medications for some GI issues she had. She will begin physical therapy in a couple of weeks. We want to get her vaccinated first...that has been put off due to her size and condition.

12/21/12 - Ariel is feeling so much better. She is now weaned and has gained 3 oz! We are hoping to get her exercise program started in the near future.

12/14/18 - Due to some GI issues, we have not been able to work with Ariel much in terms of physical therapy. She will be fine, but needs to rest. She is a very tiny pup and we don't want to stress her too much.

12/8/2018 - Ariel was seen by the physical therapist this past week and a home program has been started. She will return in 2-3 weeks to be measured and see if there is any progress. We are taking it slowly with her....she continues to have other issues related to eating. She will eat one day and reject food the next and needs to be syringe fed on those days. She is staying right at 1 lb so medical testing is limited right now. She is stable and her blood work actually looks good so we are letting Miss Ariel set her own pace, so to speak.

Thank you to so many of you for your kind words, your prayers and your donations. She does have a long way to go and we are so appreciative of the love you all show our babies who need us so much..

12/3/2018 - Ariel was discharged from ICU on 12/1 and has been doing well in her foster home. She has an appt with Physical Therapy for this coming Thurs. and will begin a home treatment program. Once she is stronger and able to be vaccinated, she will be going to in house physical therapy.

UPDATE: 11/30/2018 - Ariel is staying another night in the hospital. She is taking syringe feedings well, but still not interested in eating on her own. She is still in the incubator. She is going to be taken out of it for the day and tonight to be sure she can maintain her body temperature. She will then hopefully be discharged tomorrow to her foster home and be weaned. We are fairly certain that she was never weaned prior to her coming to us even though we were told she was eating.   We also had a paper that said she weighed 1.3 lbs on the day we picked her up. When we took her to GCVS the next morning she was 15 oz. She now only weighs 1.034 . So, she has gained a bit of weight. She does not have swimmers.   She was evaluated by the orthopedic surgeon and she has some deformities in her hind legs with severe muscle contractures. She cannot start physical therapy until she is able to eat by herself and be a "normal" puppy. The first thing that needs to be done is to work on the muscle contractures. Her vet expenses will certainly be rising....she is going to need intensive PT and she "may" need surgery in the future. There is a possibility that she won't....we will just have to take this one step at a time. Thank you to all who are praying for this precious girl and donating towards her care. You all are the reason we are able to help these pups. <3

11/28/2018 - We believe Ariel has Swimmer's Syndrome and this is why she was referred to us. When she is feeling better, we will post a video of her. She is affected in her hind limb. She had an appointments with our orthopedic specialist and physical therapy for tomorrow; but she has not eaten since she came to us and was lethargic. After two ER visits between last night and this morning, she ended up being admitted to ICU at Gulf Coast Vet Specialists in Houston. She does not appear to be ill based upon her blood work so far; but, she needs intensive and frequent feedings and IV fluids. They are hoping to avert having to put a feeding tube in. We will update later when we know more about her.

10/31/18 - Hi everyone. I wanted to updated you about myself. The vet put me on an anti-anxiety medicine and it is really helping. I am tolerating the dogs in the house better now. I really am enjoying the new me. I'm in a foster home with cats, dogs and small children and I used to constantly be mad, anxious and causing trouble. Now, with my miracle medicine, I'm more relaxed and co-exist a lot better. I would still do better if there was a home out there that wanted me to be the only baby, but I just had to let everyone know what a happy boy I am now. Happy Halloween to Everyone!

9/4/18 - Hi Everyone! My name is Bruno and I am looking for a new home. Seems Iím not good with the dogs, cats or small children in the house. This does not mean that Iím not a great baby boy, it just means that I get anxious with too much activity and other animals and children raise my anxiety level. All that extra stimulation is just too much for me.
I am spunky, energetic and very loving. I just adore cuddling with my humans and like to sleep on the big bed at their feet. Iím very in tune with my people and can always tell when they need a nuzzle, quick kiss or a quirky Yorkie smile to make them laugh. I am very friendly and loving to people (adults). I love toys and enjoy trying to de-squeak them.
I absolutely love to go for car rides and load up very easily. Now, getting me out, thatís another story. (Teehee) I walk great on a leash and love going on walks to get energy out. I do well with my potty habits but may have some accidents until we get to know each other.
I may be a bigger Texas size Yorkie, but Iím a little fraidy-cat with bad storms and fireworks. I will curl up in your lap for security or find somewhere to hide if you arenít available.
I have an abundance of love to give and just know that you are out there wanting a single companion to spoil. Iím the guy for that. Oh, did I mention that my birthday is October 31st? Yep, Halloween! The way I figure it, you better hurry up and apply to adopt me, so we have plenty of time to figure out my costume. Iím an extra stinking cute Batman, but I also make a very handsome Prince.

12/16/2018 - Cash is a "diamond in the ruff". When he was originally picked up, he was covered in fleas and his hair was terribly matted. He was shaved down and had pretty rough looking skin. His skin has improved and he is looking to much better. Just wait until his hair grows back in! :)

12/16/18 - Cash had his surgery to remove the bladder stones on 11.27.18 and has recovered well from that surgery. He is now on a prescription diet to hopefully prevent further stone formation. We are still waiting on the report on the type of bladder stones. He had a bladder infection that was cleared with antibiotics. He is having some issues with occasional nighttime incontinence so we are working to figure out the cause of that. He wears a belly band and does not seem bothered by it at all.

Cash is a very pleasant pup who gets along well with his foster siblings. He loves to snuggle in bed at night.

11/26/2018 - 11:00 AM - Cash was given away online to a lady who ended up taking him to a vet only to find out that she could not afford him due to all of his presenting medical needs. She reached out to us since he needed immediate surgery. He also has flea dermatitis and dry eye. She told us he was covered with fleas when she got him. She treated him for the fleas and did get some meds for him and also medicated shampoo for his horribly irritated skin.
He is presently at our vet being prepped for surgery. As we know more about Cash we will update his bio.

8/21/16 - Charlie does not let the fact his teeth are gone prevent him from enjoying his food. Eating is the highlight of his day. He's a very vocal boy when it is time to eat. His demands are few....as long as his tummy is full, he's a happy boy. He is not much into being held. He will enjoy it for a few minutes, but then he wants to get down and be left alone. Charlie gets along with his foster siblings ... just sniffs them and checks them out and then walks away. He really is a very low key, low maintenance pup. Perhaps in his own home he will learn to enjoy being held more....we get the feeling it isn't something he ever got used to.

2/16/2016 - Charlie is doing very well in his foster home. He went to the specialist yesterday and had his sutures removed. He is healing nicely. He was seen by the vet dentist/specialist and is scheduled for a dental on March 2. His teeth are in pretty rough shape...we don't think he will have any left;but won't know for sure until the dental is done as xrays will be done at that time.

2/3/16 - Charlie is beginning to show improvement! His IV's have been discontinued and his blood sugar is stable. Surgery will be checking on him tomorrow...the hope is that the drain will be removed. His surgery site looks to be healing well.
He does still have a feeding tube, but he is starting to eat a little bit with some coaxing.
He is more steady on his feet now!
They are looking at a possible discharge on Friday. He will more than likely be discharged with the feeding tube in...and if he eats well over that weekend, it may be removed the following Monday.
Thank you for all of your sweet words, thoughts and prayers and donations. We are all so happy that Charlie has done so well. This is something we could not do without all of the wonderful supporters we have!!! We can now love Charlie the way he always deserved to be loved.

2/1/16 - Charlie had to have a feeding tube placed today because he will not eat and he does need nutrition in order to heal. The infection seems to be lessening...and his incision looks ok today. We are hopeful that once he is being fed, his recovery time will be quicker!

1.31.16 - There isn't much to report tonight. Charlie is still ill and has a long way to go, but is currently stable. Thank you to everyone for your thoughts, donations and prayers!

1/30/2016 - 11:30PM - Charlie had surgery tonight to explore his wounds and debride them.. The surgeon called at 10 PM to let us know how things went. Poor Charlie had a very large area of necrosis on his neck. For now, it is closed up with a drain in it; but if the infection continues, he will lose more skin/tissue and that could present some real problems in terms of closing the wound. His antibiotics are being changed to something stronger until we get his infection under control. He will remain in ICU until he is physically stable and then would be moved to the surgery unit. He really needs prayers and we still have not met our goal for him financially. It is entirely possible his bill will rise...he now has bills with the Internal Med service and one for Surgical. If you can spare a cup of coffee for Charlie it would be so appreciated...dollars add up! Thank you everyone for your good thoughts, prayers and donations over the past 24 hours.

1.30/2016 - Charlie update! First of all, many thanks all of you who have donated towards his care! We could not continue to save babies like Charlie without all of you!
Charlie is stable this morning, but of course, still very ill. They had a surgical consult done on him late yesterday and the surgeon said that his wounds need to be surgically explored. In cases like this, what you see on the surface is usually just the "tip of the iceberg" so to speak. The internal med vet will speak with the specialist today to come up with a plan. They need to decide if this can be done now, or if he needs to be more stable for them to anesthetize him.

1/29/2016 - Charlie was found in a yard yesterday and taken to a shelter.We were notified of him this morning and picked him up from the shelter. He has multiple bite wounds, bruised, shocky, He has what appears to be road rash on feet and rear and a very swollen neck. Dehydrated. Blood sugar very low. Our vet checked him thoroughly and referred him to Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists in Houston where he has been admitted to ICU.

Charlie is in critical (but stable for now) condition. His blood sugar and blood pressure are unstable. He may have some underlying health issues and he is being evaluated for that. He is on IV fluids and antibiotics. We will update as we hear more about him .. and about his testing.

Donations greatly needed and appreciated. His estimate through tomorrow is between $2,300 and $3,000

6/4/18 - Daisy would really love to be the only furbaby in the home. She doesnít have much to do with the other pups in her foster home, but can sometimes be snippy with them depending on her mood and their personality. This alone would make her best as an only pup.

She eats well, but must remain on a Hills ID low fat diet. She would probably love to sleep in the bed with her humans when an only pup; but, for now seems to choose the bed at times and other times a dog bed on the floor or even a crate. We think this is to get away from the other dogs.

She has been around children and is fine around them, but not too young to where they donít understand how to respect her space. She is great with all people, but sometimes can take a little while to warm up.

She absolutely loves to play fetch. If your throwing arm is ready, she can fetch all day long. Daisy is good about doing her business outside or on a pee pad, but because of the positioning of her leg, when tinkling on the pad, she seems to over estimate and there is tinkle around the edges of the pad. Youíve got to give an A for effort though.

Daisy does fine on a leash but would prefer to have her own back yard of privacy over being walked to have to go. She is the best in the department of clingy/independent. At times she will literally want to lay on top of you and other times wants to be by herself. Again, we think she would really come around to being a clingy baby if she is the only one.

She wouldnít be good as an apartment pup since she will bark at noises or if she thinks she needs to alert you to something or protect you. Lol

When picking Daisy up, she will scoot from you. This is where her timid side comes in, so someone will have to realize that even though you would be getting a gorgeous little girl that is a sweetheart, you might have to not push yourself on her and just give her the space and patience to come around to you. Sheís been through a lot and sometimes these things stick with these babies awhile. Always a soft voice and gentle demeanor and calm house makes the most timid babies come out of their shell.

She can utilize a bench or steps to get on the sofa or bed or you can just do it the old fashioned way and put her up and down.

She is doll baby for grooming which is really great since her hair is so beautiful.

Now to give you the medical update on Daisy:
She has allergies at times and she is on Cytopoint injections for that which has really helped. At present they are lasting about 2 months, but that could change to being needed monthly. It is really important to keep her on the Hill ID Low fat. She had some bloody stool episodes and the diet has seemed to do the trick. Daisy also is in Stage 1 of Renal Disease.

She is doing fine and could live a long life, but please realize that by adopting Daisy, you will not be getting a young, bouncy, totally healthy puppy. You will truly be rescuing a dog in need that actually isnít on her last legs. She might have medical issues, but she is a great pup that eats great, sleeps great, is awesome for grooming, will let you shower her with attention, but wonít demand to be the most important part of your day all day long. One who really needs a human(s) take care of her and let her make you laugh. Her allergy injections and diet do make her a little more expensive than the next yorkie up for adoption, but who doesnít have a few things going on. Daisy will give you daily love and attention if you are in need of someone to share your life.

1/24/17 - Daisy just got back from an appointment with the orthopedic surgeon to see how all was going with her leg. He said that she is ďhealed and ready to goĒ. So...... she trotted right home and packed her bags. Wow, talk about wanting a new family. Lol

As you have likely read, Daisyís leg was such in the beginning that we did not even think it could be fixed. But, much to our amazement, she does not have that pretzel of a leg any longer. The surgical procedure that had to be done to untwist it, has resulted in that leg being shorter than her other back leg. She has the stealth look of a GSD with the low back. The best part is that she can use the leg now and can scratch the itches she couldnít scratch before. When running, she chooses to lift it. We assume this is habit from so many years of not being able to use it. But, if just walking, she uses all four.

Daisy LOVES to play fetch and will do so all day. Her motto, ďIf you have the time, I have the stamina.Ē And latex squeaky balls are her ďfetch of choiceĒ.

She can be quite the diva with other pups, so being an only pup in the house would be ideal so as not to have any spats.

She will use pee pads, and almost always gets Ĺ on the pad, lol. She also goes outside each time she is brought.

She likes to sleep in bed with her people, rides well in a car, is a hearty eater and, as you can see by her photos, will be the prettiest daughter anyone could ever have.

So, with all this being said, Daisy is fixing to get her teeth cleaned and then she will truly be ďready to goĒ. Please look at this pretty face, look past her flaws and give this baby a chance at a life that she obviously did not have to start off. She prays for a family every night. Who will make her prayers come true?

12/5/2016 - Daisy has been on a prescription diet and is doing well. There have been no GI flare ups. Her recent blood work was improved...will be testing again in another month. At this point, no further testing is being suggested by the specialist.

10/3/2016 - Daisy was hospitalized in ICU a little over a week ago with HGE (hemorrhagic gastroenteritis) and probable PLE as her protein levels were low. She is on a low fat diet and will be seeing the specialist in another week for follow up blood work. If her protein levels are still low, she likely will have an endoscopy to pinpoint the cause of the protein loss). We will update as we know more. She is currently stable and doing well.

6/13/16 - While Daisy is a love of a pup, she does have issues with other pups. We are looking for her to be the queen of her castle. :)

4/10/2016 - While out in the bluebonnets taking photos a rainbow appeared! Daisy and her foster mom made a wish for Daisy's perfect furever home to appear!

She has had some issues with her leg and is in a splint; but it is a minor setback. The implants had to be removed from her leg and one small area needed further attention and healing. She will be seeing the surgeon at the end of the month and we are hoping she will be completely healed at that time.

Don't let that stop you from completing her application as it does take some time to process applications! :)

10/31/2015 - Daisy is doing well with her physical therapy. If you click on Videos under her photo, you can see her on the treadmill at Gulf Coast Vet Specialists Physical Therapy Dept. She walked on her leg for 10 minutes this past week!

Her ears are being treated for a yeast infection. At this time they seem to be responding to treatment. There is some tissue overgrowth but our vet thinks she may be fine since the ear canal is still there. She has clearly had issues with her ears in the past. Most likely she has allergies, but is not yet showing symptoms in her foster home. The surgeon will also be looking at her ears.

10/22/2015 - Daisy's leg has healed well and she started Physical Therapy yesterday to learn how to use it. She will be going to PT twice/week for 6 - 8 weeks and is getting stretching exercises at home. She is already trying to use the leg in certain conditions, so this is all very exciting! Prior to her surgery, that leg was completely unusable! She can actually scratch herself now! :)

9/14/15 - Daisy's leg wrap and her sutures were removed today. Dr. Beale is very happy with her progress. She looks great and will go back the first week of October...more than likely she will be starting physical therapy at that time.

9/4/2015 - Daisy had a very extensive surgery. Dr. Beale had to cut the tibia and femur and put plates in. Her knee cap was on the back side of her knee. There was a lot of scar tissue and overall a very long and tedious surgery but he feels confident that she will do just fine! She may need some physical therapy in the future but for now, it is rest and recuperation for her. She will be on crate rest for 6 - 8 weeks, with leash walking only for potty time. Many thanks to all for the prayers and good thoughts for Daisy!

9/2/2015 - Daisy was surrendered by her owner to a local shelter who contacted us to take her in. They were concerned because of her inability to use her left hind leg.

We are posting photos and a video of Daisy's leg to show what this baby has had to endure for most of her life. She also has had repeated ear issues...they will be taking a better look at them when she is under anesthesia.

Daisy was taken to see Dr. Beale at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists in Houston and will be having surgery on her leg on Friday. He said that this leg is like this because she had knee issues as a puppy before her growth plates closed; so her knee is very twisted and the bones are out of alignment. This will be an extensive surgery as there will be a lot of scar tissue in there; but she will be able to use her leg after this surgical correction! We were very excited to hear that this could be done! Of course, this type of surgery does not come without a price....her estimated surgery bill is $4,300. Anything you can do to help us save Daisy's leg will be so appreciated!

10/31/18 - Boo! Oops, did I scare you? I'm sorry. I just wanted to touch base with everyone to let them know that I am still here and available for adoption. Don't get me wrong, I'm a very lucky girl to have a foster family that loves me and said I can stay here until my forever home comes along, but I was just hoping that sooner rather than later I would have a forever home.

4/25/18 - Ellie had an episode lately that scared her foster mom. Her right eye looked very strange. So off to the Veterinary Eye Institute they went. Ellie had mature cataracts in both eyes along with low tear production and retinal degeneration. At this latest visit, we were informed that the cataract in Ellie's right eye had "dropped". Whe developed a posterior lens luxation. Ellie is on eye meds to help control/prevent the development of glaucoma, decrease inflammation and keep the lens in in the vitreous chamber. The one good outlook on all of this is that with the cataract not in the middle of the eye any longer, Ellie can actually see out of that eye again. She is a happy little girl that is all about her foster mom. She gets around fine, both before with two cataracts and now with one. She would love to be an only dog, but does fine if the other pups it the house don't bother her.

12/20/16 - Ellie is a sweet little girl that gets very attached to her humans, mainly one person. Itís her foster mom in her foster home. She cannot see anything but shadows, but once used to the home, gets around just fine. Due to how attached she gets to her human and the fact that she cannot see makes her testy with other animals. Seems she would rather be the only one getting attention and gets upset if another dog touches her or brushes by her.

She will make a great addition to a laid back home that wants a companion to sit with, play ball with, yes, she is obsessed with toys, and sleep with.

7/28/16 - Ellie had her appt. today with Dr. John Warren at the Veterinary Eye Institute and the news was not in our favor. Seems Ellie IS NOT a candidate for cataract surgery. Even though she does have complete cataracts in both eyes, unfortunately, the retinal tested performed (ERG) showed that Ellie also has retinal degeneration in both eyes. This will not allow cataract surgery to be performed and be successful. We are happy that we at least got Ellie to the specialist to see if there was anything that could be done. Now that we know there isnít, we will just focus on the fact that she is a spectacular little girl that still needs a great home. Donít let her lack of sight scare you away because she is quick to learn and eager to please. She mastered her foster home in a matter of days. Sight or no sight, Ellie is a awesome little girl and deserves a loving mom and/or dad after all the losses she has been through.

7/26/16 - Ellie came into our rescue with mature cataracts. We have an appt. scheduled for Thursday, July 28 with the ophthalmologist to see if she might be a candidate for cataract surgery. We are crossing our fingers that she is. Ellie is such a sweetheart of a baby and we would love to be able to give her the gift of sight. Her glass is half full already, just imagine how much more happy and confident she would be with being able to see fully.

Ellie was previously owned by, and provided emotional support for, a handicapped lady. She passed away in April of 2013 leaving Ellie in the care of her father and his wife. When the husband became ill and passed in March of 2016, this left Ellie losing yet another loved family member and another scar to her heart. The husbandís wife was too upset to take care of Ellie and Ellie was closer to the husband anyway. So, she did the best she could for Ellie and reached out to rescue so Ellie could find a home and family that would love her as her previous 2 owners.

She is now in a foster home where she simply adores her foster mom. She gets very clingy, very fast to her people and loves them unconditionally. In her foster home there are other dogs, but Ellie does not play with them and would be happier if they werenít there. Lol. To that end, she would do best in a home where she could be the only dog that shadows her human. She has nipped at the current other four legger residents if they try to get too close when she is sitting next to foster mom. She will not go any further than a nip, but this nip lets us know that she would really love and benefit in having her own humans to herself. She has lost so much and so many, that she deserves to be number 1.

Ellie sleeps in the human bed right next to foster mom. She will lay wherever foster mom lays. We cannot express how clingy and focused on her humans she is. When Ellie first entered her foster home, she did not eat well. This could have been a combination of not liking her previous food, the fact that she had lost two loved ones, or a combination of the two. She is eating well now and food is left down so she can snack throughout the day.

Ellie absolutely loves her toys and can be quite obsessive over her tennis balls. She loves to play fetch and will scatter her toys all over. She will bring her tennis balls to you and beg you to throw them. Although she has numerous tennis balls, if she is playing with a particular one and it goes under the couch or gets lost, Ellie will obsess over it. She will search and search and search for the lost ball. And do not think you can entice her with a different one! She just wonít have it. She must have that ball. She can also be extremely aggressive with her stuffed toys. She loves to shake them and can get very loud with it. Her stuffed toy playing can be quite intimidating.

As far as potty habits, Ellie does very well. Accidents with her are rare, but not saying that once changing homes again, they could not happen. Once she learns where the door is she will go to the door and sit down in order to let you know she needs to go out. She also walks well on a leash and will go potty on a leash.

She isnít an obsessive barker, but will bark when she hears noises or if there is a knock at the door. And she is quite the terrier when it comes to stalking bugs, or any type of rodents.

She rides well in the car and really enjoys going for rides. Once she gets comfortable in her home, when someone comes in the door, she will bark at them and dart towards them. She does not bite, just letting you know you are entering her turf.

Please understand that Ellie is all about her person and needs a human or two that will be ok with her taking every step they take and being on top of them. Her foster mom says that she is just the best little foster ever and she is proud to have been able to take this baby in while we try to locate her a forever home.

8/6/17 - Due to Jax's issues with settling things with his teeth, we will only adopt him out to a home in the Houston area that is willing to do a "slow" adoption, allowing Jax and his potential family to get to know each other.

12-20-16 - Jax is the same as written below

May 23, 2015 - While Jax is showing improvement, he is still having some issues adapting to life in a loving home. He is coming along, but really needs patient loving people around him.

Currently, when Jax gets overwhelmed he tends to want to "get up close and personal" with his mouth to whatever is annoying him (or anything/anyone in his way). . We are working on this, but it will take some time to convince him to be a lover/not a fighter.

January 15, 2015 - Time for a Jax update! Jax has had a bit of a trying time adjusting to life in a loving home. As you can see from his original photos he was either neglected or left to live alone outside for a very long time.

He is a bit of a challenge at times, but is a very sweet boy. He as come a long way and is getting a bit better about being handled; but he still needs more rehab time. He can be bathed cautiously and his hair trimmed a bit; but his foster mom is taking it in baby steps. In the end he will be a super loving wonderful pet! Just going to take a bit more time.

The latest photo of him shows that he is a bit "shaggy" but we think he is very handsome! :)

May 22, 2014 - Jax is doing well. He goes on short leash walks throughout the day. He is walking better and better! He is on crate rest and will be for about 6 more weeks. His eyes looked much improved. He has an appointment next week to have his sutures removed.

May 11, 2014 - Jax had surgery to repair his pelvis on May 7. He was discharged from the hospital on May 9. He was shaved down and was seen by the eye doctor. He is being treated for a bacterial skin infection and infection of his eyelids. He also is being medicated for pain and is on crate rest. He is coming along well but his recovery will be slow.

May 6, 2014 - Jax was admitted to GCVS. Will update as we know more.

May 6, 2014 - We received an emergency call about a yorkie that was found on the side of the road late yesterday. He spent the night at the Emergency Clinic where he was found to have a severly fractured pelvis. He is very dirty and matted...his eyes were full of green discharge...the EC cleaned his face up as best they could. He is of course on pain medications. He is on his way this morning to see Dr. Beale at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists in Houston.
Anything you can do to help financially will be appreciated. This surgery is definitely going to be in the thousands. Jax is a young man and deserves a chance at a good life!
Please keep Jax in your thoughts and prayers.

January 13, 2019 - Mickey is on Cisapride and Omeprazole for his reflux. He was diagnosed with IBD and is on Hill's Ultra ZD prescription food. His personality is still the same as noted in his August 3rd post. His fondest wish is to be the center of somone's universe!

November 11, 2018 - Mickey is doing well and recovering from his surgery.....his cytology revealed that he does have reflux and also has an infection in his esophagus. His meds are being changed. Still waiting on the biopsies. Thank you all for everything you have done!!!

11/15/18 - Mickey is ok and resting in the hospital. His neuter and hernia repair went well; but, the scope showed that he definitely has some issues going on in his GI tract. Biopsies were done of his intestines and stomach...and washes of the esophagus. His treatment will depend on those results.

11/10/18 - Mickey is doing well. His test for Myesthenia Gravis was negative. He does continue to regurgitate water. We tried thickening it but he rejected that. His foster mom picks him up whenever she sees him drinking and holds him up so the water can pass. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.

He has one more test to be done...a scope of his esophagus. He also needs to be neutered and have the hernia repaired. He will be having these things done at Gulf Coast Vet Specialists in Houston this week. He will need a dental but that will have to be at a later date.

Anything you can do to help with his vet expenses is appreciated. Prayers too!! We are slightly concerned about anesthesia for this little guy due to the regurgitation issues and aspiration risks..

9/22/2018 - After extensive testing, we have found that Mickey is unable to hold water down; but is able to hold food down. It is thought to be a sensory issue and we are now trying different things to help him. We will update as we know what works best. What we DO know is that it is not causing any noticable health issues for him. He is not getting dehydreated and his blood work is fine! We are keeping him on canned food which provides water for him. We are waiting for the results of a test for Myesthenia Gravis.

He will be neutered this coming week and have his inguinal hernia repaired. Hopefully, in the near future Mickey will be ready for his forever home!

August 20, 2018 - Mickey has been having some ongoing medical issues that we are sorting out. His neuter and hernia repair have been put on hold while further tests are being done. He has increased water intake and increased urination and also has been regurgitating water 3 or 4 times/day. His blood work looks great. He is going to have an ACTH stim test this Wed, the 22nd, and also a urine culture. X rays will be done to see if there is anything obvious regarding the regurgitation. We will take it from there .. he may end up needing an internal med referral.
Donations and prayers appreciated!

August 3, 2018 - Whoís the leader of the club thatís made for you and me? M-I-C-K-E-Y V-E-L-C-R-O This is my theme song says my foster mom. I just want to be with her all day long and I let her hear it when she leaves the room without me! She is not sure if I have always been this way or if it is because, after all these years, my family left me at a shelter saying they did not have time for me; but, the bottom line is that she has promised me a home where I will be with someone all of the time! This means a home where someone is not going to leave me to work all day and is not going to be bothered by my barking to get what I want. I do carry on when I want to go out, when I am not sure where my foster mom is, when I want to be held, when I want to eat and whenever I want anything! If I am content, then the whole house is content! I love to go out in the car and love to shop! There are many stores I am welcome inÖ.I have been to Hobby Lobby and Home Depot in the past week and made a lot of friends!

I am just recovering from a pretty bad bout of kennel cough that I probably contracted at the shelter; so, I have not yet had the surgery that I need. I need to be neutered and also have an inguinal hernia that will be repaired at the same time. I also have one broken tooth so, when I have my dental that tooth will be removed. My teeth look really good Ö the doctor said I must have hit the genetic jackpot since yorkies usually have bad teeth she said. I had horribly infected earsÖ.they have cleared up nicely.

I get along with the other pups in my foster home; but, I donít spend a lot of time playing with them because I really do prefer the company of my foster mom.

Foster mom has been putting a thing on me called a belly band because I do have accidents.

So, after all of the things mentioned above are taken care of, I will be ready for my forever home. Donít forgetÖ.I want to be attached to you with Velcro, just like my nickname! Nothing else will work out. I promise I will give you lots of kisses and love. Oh, and I LOVE to snuggle with my foster mom in bed at night!

If you think I might fit in nicely with you, please complete the online application for me.

7/11/2018 - - Allow me to introduce myself - my name is Houdini.... I mean Rex. I must have been a magicianís helper in a former life since Iím awesome at disappearing/escaping. This isnít actually good though since it always got me in trouble before. I ran off from my previous owners a lot and wound up getting hit by a car one day. I was picked up and taken to animal control and when my owners realized that surgery was needed, opted to surrender me to YHR so I could be fixed. Iím all healed now and good to go, so my new home that is.

Seems old habits die hard and even in my foster home I try to escape when I get the chance. What can I say, Iím just an explorer. Foster mom wasnít as easy to get past as my former owners. Whatís funny is that I am a major velcro dog with my people, so why do I want to leave? Excitement! I love cuddling with my people and definitely have to sleep in bed close to them. I honestly would much rather live with humans than other pups. Foster mom says she will find me a home where I can be a prince...I told her I might accept a sister, but brothers are out!

So with everything Iíve let you know about my skills, I will need a very secure yard and very attentive parents (no children) who will be one step ahead of me and before opening the door to the pizza man, pick me up.

I know Iím a cutie, so other than having to watch my like a hawk for any escape opportunities, I can make your life quite great.

6/6/15 - Rex is now all fixed up and ready to move on to his perfect furever life! He was seen by the surgeon this week and given a clean bill of health.

He is a happy little, lovable pup who loves to snuggle with a human. He also does like to play with other pups, but can be a tad bit bossy at times...just needs to be reminded to play nicely :) He does not like to share his human, so it is best he not be with a pup who is super attached to his human.

4/13/15 - Rex has been in his foster home for a couple of weeks now and being kept calm so that he can heal from his surgery to repair his diaphragm and let his pelvic fracture try to heal as well. He went in on 3/30 to get his staples out, and goes back to GCVS on 5/20 for x-rays to see how he is healing. One good bit of news for this baby is that he was tested for heartworms and was negative.

Rex seems interested in other dogs, so we think that once he has healed, he will be interested in playing with them. He also seems interested in toys. We will all be so glad once he is totally healed and can play. His appetite is great and he sleeps very well. Rex seems to love everyone he meets and is a well rounded baby.

He loves exploring when outside. We think it is the first time he has truly had a secure fenced yard to explore in without worrying about cars racing by and the activity of life of a dog able to roam freely in the streets.

He loves attention and loves to be held and petted on. Kisses are another of his favorites. He also follows his human around and doesnít want them out of his sight. So, we think heíll be a velcro dog unless this changes with time. We will update Rexís bio after his next appointment and as we learn more about this sweet baby boy.

3/18/15 - Rex had surgery to repair his diaphragm. His organs from his tummy had to be pushed back down and then the diaphragm was repaired. It is a pretty large incision .. chest surgery. He is not currently using his right rear leg due to his pelvic fracture. That should be fine as his pelvis heals.

He is now in his foster home finally getting love and attention. He still needs to be on strict rest for 8 weeks to heal properly, so we may not totally know his personality and what type home he needs to be in for a while. We will keep everyone updated on his progress and thank you all so much for donating and saving this babies life.

We have no choice but to do this surgery ASAP .. we cannot wait for donations to schedule surgery .. so anything you can do to help is totally appreciated.

We were contacted today about Rex who was deemed by the shelter vet to be an emergency. He was hit by a car and has multiple pelvic fractures and a diaphragmatic hernia. Both of these must be surgically repaired. He does have some increased respirations due to the diaphragm, but is not in distress at present. We transported him to Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists​ in Houston and he was admitted and evaluated. He will be watched closely overnight. Surgery for both conditions is planned for tomorrow unless his breathing is worse and then they will have to do it as an emergency tonight. Poor Rex is terribly matted and has sticker burrs all over him. They will shave him down tomorrow after he is anesthetized.

You also can donate directly towards his care at GCVS by calling 713-693-1122

10/31/18 - Happy Thanksgiving! Oops, I mean Happy Halloween. I knew it was some holiday that involved pumpkins. Well, I'm still here with my foster family waiting for someone to look at pictures, fall in love and come scoop me up. I know I have baggage with me because of Cogenital Kidney Disease, but I'm such an awesome dog that you could almost look over that. Couldn't you? Please!

4/25/18 - Spencer is still in his foster home and is still looking for that perfect family. To reiterate, Spencer has Cogenital Kidney Disease. This is a disease that affects the development and growth of the kidney before or shortly after birth in which the kidney is abnormal in its ability to function normally. Spencer's specific symptoms are excessive thirst (called polydipsia) and urination (polyuria). Since he is unable to concentrate the urine which results in more water passing out of the body in the form of urine, he will always need free access to water to prevent dehydration (even more so in the summer months). Withholding water WILL NOT decrease his need to urinate and may cause problems. He also constantly needs access to outside, so a doggy door would probably be a better situation for Spencer, or a home where someone is home during the day to give him access to outside often. In his foster home, he does a great job of going outside with having this doggy door access. He is not on any special diet or medication. This condition is not reversible and the prognosis is poor. However, if detected early enough, like we have, Spencer's life span could be longer. The specialist said that there is no way to accurately predict how many years he has without doing further extensive and invasive testing (which we do not feel is necessary for him at this point since he has already gone through so much to diagnosis this), but a good estimate is 4-6 years (no crystal ball). This in no way means that he doesn't deserve a great family to call his own, so if you feel that you have what it takes to give Spencer the life he deserves, please fill out an application.

9/27/17 - Spencer is a happy young man who has NO idea that he has a "condition". He gets along with all dogs and people alike. He is a perfect gentlemen and even babies the pit bull in the home. This makes him a great catch, as long as someone understands that he has congenital kidney disease. The symptoms remain as stated below, but once in a routine, his foster mom says that it is just that, routine.

3/3/16 - The results of Spencer's cushing test came back negative. So, it appears that Spencer's condition is "congenital kidney disease". This is a disease that affects the development and growth of the kidney before or shortly after birth in which the kidney is abnormal in its ability to function normally. Spencer's specific symptoms are excessive thirst (called polydipsia) and urination (polyuria). Since he is unable to concentrate the urine which results in more water passing out of the body in the form of urine, he will always need free access to water to prevent dehydration (even more so in the summer months). Withholding water WILL NOT decrease his need to urinate and may cause problems. He also constantly needs access to outside, so a doggy door would probably be a better situation for Spencer, or a home where someone is home during the day to give him access to outside often. In his foster home, he does a great job of going outside with having this doggy door access. He is not on any special diet or medication. This condition is not reversible and the prognosis is poor. However, if detected early enough, like we have, Spencer's life span could be longer. The specialist said that there is no way to accurately predict how many years he has without doing further extensive and invasive testing (which we do not feel is necessary for him at this point since he has already gone through so much to diagnosis this), but a good estimate is 4-6 years (no crystal ball).

Despite all of this, Spencer is not in any pain, quite the lover, and despite the set back of tinkling more and drinking more than the normal dog, he is the greatest little guy ever. Very social, makes the other pups in the home play, is very loving and cuddly with his foster parents and an all around sweetheart.

Don't let Spencer never get a last name for something that has been passed down because of bad breeding. He has many great years to fulfill some great family's life and he is just waiting to start his next journey.

2/18/16 - Here is a new picture of Spencer channeling his inner Michael Jackson discovering the Man in the Mirror. Spencer is such a great little man with a glass is half full type personality. He loves people, loves life, loves to play, loves to sleep, loves to cuddle, loves to eat, and so on, and so on. There isn't much that Spencer isn't up for or good at.

One thing that Spencer does have issues with is drinking and tinkling. At first, his foster mom just thought he wasn't catching on to the potty training and he wore a belly band to help. But as time passed and things did not improve, she started to get concerned. Several appointments were made at his regular vet and at GCVS and numerous tests have been performed ruling out one condition after the other. One last test that will be run Tuesday, 2/23/16, is to see if he might have Cushings. If this test comes back negative, and with all prior tests ruling out various other issues/diseases, Dr. Jones feels that a congenital kidney abnormality would be considered most likely the culprit.. Unfortunately, there is no specific treatment for this condition and even though he feels and acts fine, he will continue to have increased thirst and increased urination. He does have a doggy door in his foster home which helps with his increased urination.

We will update his bio after his testing for Cushings on Tuesday.

11/10/15 - Spencer is a sweetheart of a guy that loves playing with other dogs and toys. To that end, there will need to be other four leggers in the home, no matter the size since in his foster home, there are small and large ones. He loves to ride in the car, but insists on being in your lap. I know, not totally safe, but he is very still and not disruptive at all to the safety of the road. Lol

He is loving sleeping in the bed with his foster parents and siblings and says there is no going back to a dog bed or crate to sleep at this point. Older respectful children will be ok in the home since he has energy to burn. Currently he is still working on his potty training. Outside is more of an issue than inside, since he will use puppy pads really well. His foster parents are working on moving the pee pad outside in order to get his little brain to relate to doing business outside as well.

He is an awesome, outgoing, sweet natured, sensitive little man that is just waiting to have a last name and he would like it in time for Thanksgiving, but wonít fuss if it is at least before Christmas.

9/16/15 - Spencer here. Iíve been so busy playing with my foster siblings that I totally forgot to update my bio. I am now 21 weeks old and weigh 8 lbs.

I've had two of my partners in crime leave me. Duncan and Fallon. Foster mom says they were adopted and that I'm waiting to be adopted too. I don't understand why out of us three, I'm the last one here, but it is not my job to question why. Only to be cute and focus on getting myself one of those things that Duncan and Fallon call families now.

I'm a very playful pup, so will definitely need another one in the household to play with. I LOVE humans and dogs. I'm always happy and bouncing around. I have an infinite amount of energy, so a fenced in yard is a must. My attention span is REALLY short, so foster mom is starting to try to teach me some commands in an effort to build my self-control.

Anyway, even with my Attention Deficit Disorder and the fact that I'm not totally potty trained yet (even though I do use my puppy pads and do go outside when brought), I'm still the catch of the site. I have personality plus and looks for the cover of GQ for dogs.

So, if you are interested and meet the requirements that I have listed above, fill out my online application and we'll see if you get the job as my parents. Good Luck!

7/28/15 - Spencer is one of 6 siblings that was born into rescue when their mom, Gracie, was surrendered pregnant. Gracie is a yorkie, and we are assuming that dad was a Schnauzer from the characteristics of the puppies.

Spencer is thin and strong. He can run and play non-stop. He loves giving kisses, but will sneak in a ďbite/nibbleĒ every now and then. Spencer does loves his humans, but would do best in a home with another active pup, or one of his siblings to keep his busy and company. He is a very active busy little guy.

Of course with this adorable face comes chewing, potty accidents and barking, but nothing that someone who is expecting puppy antics can't handle.

Spencer is currently 13 weeks old and should be able to be neutered and be available for adoption in about 3-4 weeks

6/20/18 - Timmy had his shoulder surgery two weeks ago and is doing very well! He was seen by the surgeon and also the physical therapist yesterday and he is doing even better than expected at this point! He is definitely a little trooper! He sends lots of kisses to everyone who donated to make his surgery possible!

4/2/18 - Timmy has a stubborn skin infection. Once we get that cleared up, he will be scheduled for surgery.

3/1/18 - Little Timmy can't seem to catch a break. He started having difficulty walking with his front feet crossing and his right shoulder popping in and out; and he was falling down frequently. He was seen by our orthopedic surgeon today in Houston and he said that Timmy needs surgery on his right shoulder. He is scheduled for an arthrodesis (fusion) of his right shoulder on March 16. His other shoulder is a bit loose, but he is hopeful that with the one being repaired there will be less of a demand on it and he may hopefully not need surgery on that other shoulder.

11.16.17 - Timmy went to the vet for an exam and an xray was done and he was found to have gall stones. Photo of the xray is in his pictures. He was referred to the specialist and he went today. An ultrasound showed that he has stones in his gall bladder, liver and bile ducts. We will be doing blood work every couple of months to keep a close eye on him. He is healthy now,and blood work looks great. He may never have issues with the stones; but must be watched closely for signs of obstruction. We don't know how long he has had them...and they may never be a problem for him. He had gone to the vet for something totally unrelated.

12/5/2016 - Timmy continues to do well. He is quite the little charmer and loves to be held. He must continue his RX diet.
Timmy needs an understanding home. He likely spent much of his life outside and may never be fully housebroken. He cannot wear belly bands because of his surgery that changed the way he urinates, so the only way to protect furniture is to put a diaper on him. We think his sweet personality makes up for all. :)

3/2/15 - Timmy is doing well. He was recently checked out thoroughly and has not formed any stones. We are thinking the surgical procedure where his urethra was rerouted has fixed that issue; but an adopter must always be aware and have him checked on a regular basis.
He is on prescription food: Royal Canin Urinary SO and must remain on that.

9/19/20`4 - Timmy is back in his foster home and doing well. He will need to be watched closely to see that his blood work continues to improve. He is taking all of his meds like a champ!

9/17/2014 - Timmy is doing very well and will be discharged from the hospital tomorrow. Thank you everyone for your prayers and donations!

9/14/2014 - Timmy (Tiny Tim) became ill overnight and was in the Emergency Clinic early this morning and then referred to Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists this afternoon.

Timmy in in ICU on IV fluids and antibiotics. His liver enzymes and white count were very elevated and he had a temp of 103.7. He has a probable liver infection, but he does have stones in his gall bladder; so they cannot rule out an obstruction until further studies are done. He will have an ultrasound tomorrow morning and hopefully that will tell us more.

You all have been so generous lately with our sick girl, Lily Rose, so it is totally understood that it may be difficult for many to donate towards Timmy's vet care. If you can help, it will be appreciated. No amount is too small....if you can give up one cup of coffee for him, it will be a huge help and deeply appreciated. One thing we ask is that you please say a prayer for this precious boy.

April 16, 2014 - Timmy has been on various diets to prevent bladder stones. With the surgery he had recently it is hopeful he will never have to have surgery again. He must be seen by a vet every three months to have his urine checked and be evaluated for stones.

March 24, 2014 - Timmy had emergency surgery today to remove a bladder stone that was blocking his urethra. Because he is a recurrent bladder stone former, a scrotal urethrostomy was done to help him pass stones if they form again which is highly likely. He will remain in the hospital for a couple of days.

February 16, 2014 - Since Timmy developed bladder stones again while on a prescription diet, we have done a veterinary nutrition consult on him and have started him on a home cooked diet. Timmy will need to be checked every 3 months for bladder stones.

January 11, 2014 - Timmy had his surgery on the 8th and he is recovering well. He sends yorkie kisses to everyone who helped us pay for his surgery and those who prayed for him!!

December 24, 2013 - In spite of being on a special diet, Timmy has developed another large bladder stone. Poor baby was in pain and went to the vet this morning. Because it is not considered an emergency, he is home on pain meds and being watched. Unless he becomes obstructed, surgery will not be done until after Christmas.
Donations and prayers appreciated!

June 13, 2013 - Timmy is doing well and has put some much needed weight on!

May 31, 2013 - Timmy had his bladder surgery two days ago and is doing fine in his recovery. The stone was huge! Pictures attached.

May 28, 2013 - Timmy was kept in a cage outside and received little to no food and water and no medical treatment at all. He was brought to animal control by his lovely owners (thank goodness) and Yorkie Haven was called to see if they had room for this 3.5 lb. baby. He had his dental and lost 17 teeth and at that time, they found out he had a large bladder stone but had to wait for surgery because he was so emaciated upon arrival.

He has now put on some weight and should be good to go for removal of his bladder stone tomorrow.

Timmy is a sweet little guy who loves his people and is doing fine with the other pups in his foster home. He and his foster mom will be looking for a home for Tiny Tim that understands these little ones and someone who is ready to give him all the love, attention and comfort that he did not get in his previous home. He moving up in the world and is not looking back.

If you can help with his vetting costs, it will be so appreciated.
