10/22/20 -
Blitzen's foster mom has notice that his ears have been having a foul order and bothering him so she had them look into this today while he was under anesthesia being neutered.  It seems this poor baby has a 2 tumors down in his ear that need to be removed.  We are scheduling an appointment with a specialist at MedVet to have this done soon.

Please keep him in your prayers.

7/26/20 – Hi, it’s me, Blitzen again checking in.  Foster mom has found out that even though they named me Blitzen, (after a reindeer since my legs are a little longer), you can pretty much call me whatever you want since I can’t hear.  Yep, I’m pretty deaf.  Don’t feel sorry for me though, I think this is a real advantage.  You know how you have those annoying siblings, parents, and friends that talk too much or too loud and you wish they would just hush?  You know where I’m going with this don’t you? Lol  I cannot hear them.  J  The down side is I can’t hear the ones I truly love.  But I can look at you adoringly and watch you speak to me and wag my tail.

Now, I can see, love, eat, play and everything else a normal dog can do.  One thing I am great at right now is humping my bed.  Yea, I know, not the most attractive thing, but we are all hoping that once I get neutered and some of these male hormones are gone, I won’t want to molest my blankets and bedding.  The good thing is that I don’t do that to my fur-siblings or anything else.

The vet said that I can be neutered and get my dental as soon as I put a little more weight on.  Seems I was pretty much on the anorexic side when I got here and apparently that isn’t the “in” look any longer. 

I sleep good and eat my food like a champ (hard food mixed with a little water).  However, it seems I must have been given table scraps before because I am GREAT at begging.  I’m learning that these people aren’t as free with their food as the last people.  Well, I’m in a great home now, so I’ll learn to accept that.

Currently, I am an unaltered male, so I am marking, but foster mom has me wearing a belly band so I won’t mess up all the furniture.  Is that crazy?  A man of my age wearing a diaper!!  Oh well, who am I to fuss about it.  I’d much rather be here than where I came from.  Foster mom says that the marking will get better once I’m neutered.  Boy, getting neutered around here at this rescue seems to be a huge thing.    They are smart people, so it must be the thing to do.  No one else til now seemed to care, so I’m grateful.

Are you in the market for an older reindeer that does take naps, but still has energy, and is a sweetheart?  Well, stop right here, because Blitzen can be that man.

7/21/20 - Blitzen is settling into his foster home and we will post a bio soon updating on his medical status and personality.

7/13/20 - Yet another baby in desperate need of vetting, love, food and rescue.  A rescue friend contacted Yorkie Haven to see if we could help this poor baby.   Blitzen, as he is now called, was definitely in bad shape when we picked him up on Friday.  We went straight to the vet just to address the obvious issues, skin, ears, eyes, nail clip.  No matter that long nails are in for humans, they are NEVER in for dogs.

Sweet Blitzen received some ear medication and medicated shampoo.  As soon as he got home, they wild hair was cut off and he received his first soothing, medicated shampoo and massage.  He enjoyed it and the dirt that came off of him was ridiculous.  He felt better after getting out of the tub.  He ate supper like a champ.  You would too if you hip and back bones and ribs were poking out.  He had a very long, exhausting day and slept like a log.  Despite it all, Blitzen is a very resilient, happy boy.  We can't wait to see what he looks like in the weeks/months to come. 

Soon he will be neutered, get a much needed dental, receive his shots and get a microchip.  It's all uphill from here Blitzen Don't look back and try to forget your past because the best is yet to come.

2/25/20 - Braxton is a bigger yorkie with a big heart. He is a sweetie, but doesn't always have to be underfoot or right by you like most yorkies. Don't get us wrong, he does love sleeping in bed with his humans, but will sometimes sleep at the foot of the bed and sometimes sleep by you. He is pretty good to do his own thing. He has a security teddy bear that he adores. It is quite ragged now, but Braxton thinks it is made of gold and walks around the house carrying it as if it is his security blanket. He has an awesome underbite that gives him so much character. When Braxton first came into rescue, we could not figure out why he was adopted from the shelter several times and returned. He is happy, glass is half full, eats good, sleeps good, does business outside each time he is brought (but could have the occassional accident), comes when called, listens and has a funny personality. Well, Braxton is a fearful dog. This doesn't show until you go to pick him up or if you are having to push him away from something with a hand or foot. We cannot imagine what he has gone through in his lifetime, and his foster home is working on these things with him, but he is not a fan of being grabbed or picked up quickly. If you do this, he will bite. He doesn't mean to bite hard, but with his adorable massive underbite it gives quite the kick. He would do best in a home with no other dogs or with a dog that is very submissive. He will not compete for attention, but we find that with multiple dogs in the home, Braxton will sometimes show his alpha personality and that is one of the main reasons we have had to "push him away". For instance, he is fed in a separate room since when he is done, he will literally go and steal any other dog's food. If you were to run over and push him away because it isn't his bowl, he then snaps. Also, being picked up. That is better if you talk to him gently and pet him as you pick him up and we've learned that picking him up with one hand under his belly is better than grabbing him with two. This is something that can get better with time, but someone would have to understand that it is a fear issue that seems to be embedded in him currently and would have 1) deal with it and try to limit these things he doesn't like; 2) work on it either individually or with a trainer; or 3) opt for another dog.

He is quite the cool character and is such fun if you think he is the one for you.



9/12/19 - Well, they say that the 3rd time is a charm. That’s true when it comes to me. Seems getting into Yorkie Haven Rescue is the third time that I have been adopted out of animal control. My previous people either didn’t have enough time or didn’t want to put forth the effort to take care of something besides themselves, or whatever other selfish reason there could be to take something promising to love and care for it and then just discard it like a stale loaf of bread.

Ok, enough whining. It’s all good now. I can say this, I never lost my happy personality. As soon as I walked into my foster home, I was a happy, grateful boy. I’m very social and love all people. I get along with other dogs my size or smaller. By the way, I’m 10.5 lbs. Larger dogs kind of send me into overload. I slept like a champ in the human bed at night and don’t move. I know how to enjoy comfort. I’m great with a bath and blowdry. I’m a very good eater. A little too over-hungry at times. I absolutely love toys and you will need a lot of them. I will take them out of the basket, and it will look like a toy store exploded by the end of the day. So I’ll need someone who will pick them all up at the end of the night and let me start all over the next morning.

I have this adorable underbite going on that everyone seems to think is precious. I don’t know, I can’t see myself in the mirror, but I’ll take their word for it. I love giving kisses and being loved on. I’m a little nervous if you are trying to walk to me to pick me up. I kind of remember some young children being in one of my many previous homes and they were probably a little too rough in picking me up, so you have to sometimes bend down and go slow.

Overall all, I am a great size – not too small – not too big. I’m handsome, loving, athletic, happy and…… for the LAST TIME, ready to move to my permanent home. This rescue I’m in said not to worry, they won’t fail me and the next time I moved, they will find someone who wants a furry companion for life. I have a positive outlook, so I believe them. I’ll be waiting.

CHASE IS A MALTESE/YORKIE MIX

10/20/20:

Chase: Alexa, when will I be adopted?
Alexa: There is a very good chance you will be adopted before Christmas!

Chase: Awesome, I better make out my Christmas list.

Alexa: Good idea!

As you can tell from my conversation with Alexa, my name is Chase and I am looking for a family. My previous home was great, but mom was having to work two jobs and was sad that she could not spend time with me, and I was home a lot by myself. So, here I am, looking for a new family that is home ALOT. Alexa tells me that I will probably be settled and unpacked by Christmas, so I’ve asked foster mom to grab a pad and pen and write down my wish list to mail into Santa. 1. Another dog or two to teach me how to play and become friends with; 2. An adorable collar, harness and leash set that compliments my coloring; 3. Good food to keep me healthy and my hair shining; 4. A mom and/or dad that is home a good bit and doesn’t mind a four-legged kid that loves attention; 5. A fenced back yard to run and play and chase the squirrels; 6. A human bed where I can sleep cuddled up next to my new parent(s); A groomer that understands that I am not a great big fan of being groomed and will be patient with me; Toys, toys and MORE toys; and 7. Someone who will love me as much as I will love them. I know that might seem like a lot, but foster mom said I can have it all and they would not pick anything less for me.

I am a great guy who would love for my next home to be my last home. You see before my previous mom found me when I was about 2 years old running loose in her neighborhood. The family I was living with at that time did not want me, so just let me roam. That’s when my previous mom took me in. She knows she did the best thing for me in giving me to YHR to find my permanent home. So, don’t let my foster mom, my previous mom, or I down. Apply if you are good with all of Christmas wishes above.

XOXO

8/5/20 - Coco had an appointment with the Ophthalmologist on 7/30/20.  He said she was a very good little girl.  His findings were that she has a hypermature cataract in her right eye and can only see shadows and an immature cataract in her left eye.  Her foster mom says that she gets around fine and doesn't bump into things.  They put her on two medicines.  1) Ketorolac Ophthalmic Solution (5 ml), 1 drop in each eye once daily which is for inflammation; and 2) Dorzolamide/Timolol Ophthalamic (10 ml), 1 drop in each eye once daily which is to relieve intralocular pressure.  


Coco is a sweet little girl that absolutely loves belly rubs.  If you rub her belly, she will fall fast asleep.  No lie.... out like a light.  This senior girl would make a great addition to a quiet, laid back home.



7/26/20 - I have an appointment with the doggy opthalmologist on 7/30 because the vet was concerned about the cataract in my right eye and wants me to get it checked out. So, say a couple prayers that everything is ok, and I will update you when it's over.

Foster mom said that since we do not know when my birthday is since I was found stray, we are calling July the month I was born. The vet estimated my age at 10, and I came to foster mom on the 5th, sooooo, my birthday is July 5, 2010. I assumed that since we now know my birthdate, there would be a huge party for me, but foster mom said that due to this stupid COVID-19, we couldn’t have one. I understand, but that doesn’t stop you from sending me gifts and emails wishing me a Happy 10th Birthday.

There are two other dogs here at my foster home and I’m cool with them, except when that female one gets in my face, I won’t back down. I might not have a last name like her, but I’m not one to be bullied, so don’t start something that you don’t want me to finish.

I love all people, but since foster mom is the one that feeds me, I tend to follow her around a lot. I have picked up a toy or two and played with them, but my favorite thing is belly rubs. I will lay beside foster mom and will fall asleep with her rubbing my belly. I have had a few accidents, but we have a doggy door here and I picked up on it in the first couple of days and foster mom said that I am using it pretty well.

I can jump on and off the sofa, and use the steps to the human bed. I haven’t been scared of the bad weather we have had lately. I do give kisses and will bark at loud noises and if my foster siblings bark I’ll chime in. My bark is a little high-pitched and loud, so it’s a good thing I don’t do it alot. I’m currently eating hard and soft food and love it. Foster mom said that I am a sweetheart and pick up on things rather quickly. The one that I do that she is not fond of is hump. I am spayed already, so not sure this will totally go away. Seems I’m not picky, I will hump your shoes, your arm, whatever is there. She is letting me know that this is not very lady like and I really want to be a classy lady, so I’m trying to be better.

I’m learning to be spoiled here, but it would be nice to have a castle all to myself with parents that are ready to make me official and give me their last name. I was in very bad shape when I was found and no one knows anything about me and my previous life. So, even though you can’t change my past, you can help rewrite my future. And once adopted, and all of this COVID-19 mess is over, you can throw me the biggest, baddest birthday party any diva has ever seen. I won’t object.

Oops, there’s foster mom’s arm, gotta go!

7/7/20 - We were able to get Coco into the vet yesterday and she is estimated to be 10 years of age. Her hair loss is from severe flea allergies. Understandable since she had to have 3 baths when first found just to get all the fleas off of her. She received shots for her skin issues and a medicated shampoo. She will go back next week for her shots and then can have her dental done. She was heartworm negative which was awesome to hear. Her foster mom says she is a sweetheart.

Thanks to everyone who donated and had Coco in their thoughts. We will keep you updated about her and will update her bio once we learn more about her personality. Coco hopes everyone has a great day!

7/5/20 - Coco is the newest throwaway, hot mess to our program.

She was found on the streets in this condition. Attempts have been made to try and locate an owner, but no one seems to be looking for her.

We will hopefully get a vet appointment soon to find out what is going on with her skin and to check her heartworm status along with getting her shots up-to-date. We are sure she will need a dental and possibly be spayed at that point. We will also get an estimate on her age and get her weight at that time as well.

The main thing right now is to keep her comfortable, give her love, good food and treat her the way that she’s obviously not been treated before.

8/4/20 - I'VE BEEN ADOPTED!

7/13/20 - Josie had her dental and spay on 7/8/20. She did great. She did lose 12 teeth, but still has 6 and eats her soft food fine. We also found out that she is hypothyroid, so was started on the medicine Thyroxine. The monthly medicine is very inexpensive. She takes .1 mg, 1/2 pill twice daily and it costs $12 per month.

She said that she will give her new owners $12 in kisses per month to make up for it though.


7/8/20 - Josie is at the vet today to get her dental and be spayed.

6/29/20 - Say hello to Josie! She is the newest member of Yorkie Haven Rescue. She arrived Friday evening. She was surrendered to a shelter in Louisiana by her owners. No explanation, no reason, just surrendered. Now that's taking social distancing A LITTLE TOO FAR!

What's that you say Josie? You are glad to be away from them? You never liked those people anyway? You are ready to start a new life with better owners? Well, your wish is our command!

Josie is a very sweet little lady that is very adaptable to change. She came right into her foster home as if she had been there her whole life. She is very social, good with other dogs, a great eater and loves sleeping in the bed.

This gal has it all. Looks, personality, attitude, charm, sweetness and a hint of a hard outer shell which helped her with her past owners since being discarded wasn't something she was expecting. Her glass is half full and she is drinking red bull. lol

She has her vet appointment for July 8th to be spayed, get all her shots, heartworm test, bloodwork and get a dental. She will probably lose some of her teeth since they are in such bad shape, but then she will feel much better. Then she will visit the photographer, so stand by for cuteness overload!

She will not be let down again. So please don't apply if you aren't a 100% awesome pet owner! No exceptions!!

7/31/20 - Kiki went to the dogtor yesterday to get all updated.  Her mouth was so bad, she lost 18 teeth.  Glad those bad things are gone.  She has 2 teeth left and won't mind eating soft food AT ALL since she is such a food hog.  This is why it is so important to get regular dentals performed, on smaller dogs especially. The results can be a toothless wonder at a young age.  Oh well, what's done is done and Kiki is still happy and cute.

7/23/20 - To quote Louis Sabin, “No matter how little money and how few possessions you own, having a dog makes you rich”.  So, Kiki wants to know just how rich do you want to be?

Kiki isn’t one of those totally clingy yorkies that is all about herself.  I know, shocking, right?  Don’t get us wrong, she is a female and does demand a certain amount of love and affection, but she doesn’t have to be the one on your lap all the time.  We are hoping this will change once she gets into a home with just 1 or 2 other dogs.  She is co-existing fine with the other dogs in the house but does not play with them or toys quite yet for that matter.  She is a very hearty eater and tries to convince the humans to share their food with her.  Not going to happen little girl!

She is very social and never meets a stranger.  Kiki is a talker (barker), so an apartment would not be the best digs for her.  She also needs a secure fenced in yard and humans that are very careful with open doors since she is very interested in “the other side”.  Maybe this is how she became stray.  We think she obviously had a nice family that loved her at some point in her life, but she was picked up stray and brought to the local shelter.  The shelter and Yorkie Haven Rescue reached out far and wide to locate an owner, but perhaps it was
just meant for Kiki to move on.

At first, Kiki felt crowded and didn’t want to sleep in the human bed, but she is now coming around and seems to like to share the human pillow.  This will be another plus for her with less dogs.  She will definitely have some accidents as it will take time for her to get adjusted, but she will go outside when brought, just needs to be brought often.  Even though Kiki isn’t clingy, she does like to give kisses.  And foster mom loves to get them.

Her legs are a little longer, so jumping up and down on the sofa isn’t a challenge for her, but to get in the bed, she will either need steps, or to be put up and down.

So, going back to that “having a dog makes you rich” quote.  What’s say you and I buy a lottery ticket….. TOGETHER!

9/15/20 - Lexi is doing great in her foster home and is a very clingy little girl. She loves attention, belly rubs, petting, to be talked to visitors, to sit in your lap to get kisses, etc. I think you get the hint.... she loves her people. Lexi's one con is that she is food aggressive. Since she is in a foster home with other dogs, her foster mom feeds her separately and waits until everyone is done to let Lexi out. Also, she doesn't like human fingers in her food. It's an easy fix, just don't touch her food while she is eating and pick up the bowl after you have let her out. Otherwise, she is awesome. She has got personality plus and puts on an act for everyone that visits. She would be best in a home with none or 1 other dog.


1/3/20 - Well, HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ME! I can only assume my previous family of 7 years didn’t want to share their turkey this year as they surrendered me to the animal shelter TWO DAYS BEFORE THANKSGIVING. I sure hope their turkey wasn’t too dry. Teehee. What I was most thankful for at Thanksgiving was that I finally had the chance at a better life. Since it’s a New Year, it’s out with the old (owners) and in with the new.

I’m now living with a foster parent of Yorkie Haven Rescue and I got to go to the dogtor and get my vaccines, have my teeth cleaned and I was finally spayed after all these years. I now have a microchip too. I guess the rescue is prouder to own me than those other people.

Anyway, Happy New Year everyone! My name is Lexi and as you tell by my pictures, I’m cute and sassy. In my foster home there are several other pups my size. I’m co-existing fine with them, but don’t play with them. My main issue is that I am food aggressive to other animals and with people. It’s not a big deal, just put my bowl down and step away so I can eat. I eat separated from the other pups so they can’t get in my space. Seems my anger only has to do with food. For this, I will not go to a home where there are small children.

I absolutely love people and haven’t met a human I don’t want to sit in their lap and give them kisses. I’m not as clingy as some yorkies but would still love it if someone were home with me a lot. I’m doing well on my housetraining. I use the provided pee pads but go outside when taken. I prefer the grass but will go on concrete if it’s raining. When the weather is pretty, I love catching up on some Vitamin D and watching the squirrels do their thing.

I’m a climber if you sit down and don’t pick me up, I will try to climb up your leg. Must have lap! Lol We recently learned that I’m not scared of the bad weather or fireworks but will bark when the thunder is loud. Have to protect my foster mom and new fur-siblings.

So recap…. Given up before Thanksgiving and spent Christmas and New Years in a foster home learning that all humans aren’t mean and uncaring. Next step…find awesome permanent family preferably by Valentine’s Day. Be Mine!

3/22/20 - The dosage of Louie's Thyroxine (1/2 pill twice daily) is good and this will be his regimen from here on out. He is still waiting on that forever home that realizes that with age comes issues and that is OK.

1/27/20 - Sweet little Louie went to the doctor recently for bloodwork and his thyroid was low. The vet started him on Thyroxine (1/2 pill twice daily) and we will recheck in 1 month to make sure this dosage is accurate.

6/18/19 - So here's the deal. Dad started to have to travel a lot for work which meant I was left alone of had to be boarded. Dad knew this wasn't what he or I wanted, so we sat down and discussed it and I agreed it would be best if I joined another family that was around more. Now, here I am in a foster home with Yorkie Haven Rescue. I used to be an only dog and know I'm in a home with more furry friends. Even though we don't actually play together, I sleep in the bed with them and get along with them all fine. Even though my eyesight is getting a tad cloudy, my hearing might be a decibel off and my joints are definitely not what they used to be, I can see, hear and get around fine. I have arthritis in my left front leg and will hold it up at times, but I'm taking some Glucosamine for it and I can run like the wind in the back yard.

I am a hearty eater, good for a bath, have very soft hair and a teddy bear face. I would love nothing more than a home where mom, dad and I can sit around watching some shows, go out in the backyard and play a little while, back in for a snack, take an afternoon ride in the car, come home for some loving and cuddle time, eat some supper, watch a movie and then lights out.

I will make the perfect addition to your family and all I ask in return is your unconditional love.... well, food, your bed, baths, toys and treats would sweeten the deal.

7/26/20 - Hey everyone.  It’s Milo the Magnificent!  Yep, that’s how I feel now.  No longer in a field having to fend for myself, no longer in a home where they don’t want me, no longer just Milo… MILO THE MAGNIFICENT!!  I know this sounds as if I know some magic tricks, and I actually do.  You see, I’m blind, but everywhere I go, I adjust very quickly and seem to learn my way around without fail.  I do lightly bump into things, but I’m not timid or scared of my shortcoming which makes me all the more magnificent.  I haven’t been blind all my life, but I will be 13 years old in December, so there were bound to be some body parts that started to give up.  I’m just glad it wasn’t my bladder. Haha.  Yes, a magician AND a comic.  Two dogs for the price of one. 

 So, my upkeep, since I have KCS, which is actually a fancy term for dry-eye, I get Optimmune ointment, 1 strip in each eye twice daily.  I also get artificial eye drops in my eyes a couple times a day

I’m fine with the other fur-beings in the house as long as they don’t get too much up in my business.  Being blind does keep you on higher alert.  I don’t like to sleep in the human bed since I’m afraid I might fall.  I’m very content in a very comfy doggy bed with a blanket.  Foster mom feeds us twice daily.  This is when I do my best magic.  She puts my bowl with soft food down and I empty the bowl.  Not all dogs are this good, I know.

 I get along with all people and will LOVE anyone who holds me.  I absolutely LOVE to be held like a baby over your shoulder.  I could stay there all day.  I am pretty free with my kisses too.  I don’t play with toys, but you never know later on.
Even though I cannot see, I’m pretty good with my potty habits if you do your job and take me out often.  Once I get comfortable, I will even get out of my bed and bark and when foster mom brings me out, I tinkle. 
I like to walk around outside, but not sure if a fenced in yard is totally necessary if you are sure you stay out with me the whole time.  Then again, who would put a dog out and let it stay out alone to use the bathroom with all the hawks and wild animals around.  That’s not the type owner I want next.  Not sure that apartment or condo life would be for me since I do have a bark and am not afraid to use it.

 That’s all I have to say about myself for now.  If you would like to help me take this magician act on the road, just fill out an application and my new employees will see if you can cut the mustard.

Signing off for now.  POOF!





7/2/20 - Milo had his dental yesterday. He lost 7 teeth that were just aching to come out. His tummy was a little upset last night and he wasn't feeling all that great, but today is a new day. And, it is the first day of the rest of his great life. Rotten teeth and bacteria free now, and still eating like a champ. Milo eats soft food and cleans his plate. For his eyes, he gets Optimmune ointment, 1 strip in each eye twice daily to help with the KCS/dry eyes. He also gets Neopolydex, 1 drop in each eye twice daily for inflammation and the infection in his eyes. We will be following up with the ophthalmologist later to get the long-term regime for this sweeties little eyes.

Being blind is not something that holds Milo back. Some dogs just adjust well, and he is one of them. We think Milo was an agility dog in his previous life. How else could you explain the way he just flies over all the hurdles that have been put in his path? Well, that and he must have angels riding on his back.

June 25, 2020 - Milo is 13 years old, blind and was found lost in a field near Arlington, TX and turned into Mansfield Shelter. Milo had a chip and his owners were contacted. They informed the shelter that he had gone missing a few months back and they could not find him. The owner had since gotten a new job and was working long hours and said that getting Milo back would not be in Milo’s best interest, so agreed to surrender him to Yorkie Haven Rescue since the shelter had already reached out us. He was pulled from the shelter Monday, June 22nd and transported to a layover home in Shreveport. We brought him to the vet since his eyes were very infected. He has very mature cataracts and had bilateral conjunctivitis with mucoid discharge. He also has KCS (dry eye) so will be on medicated ointment from now on. Saturday, June 27th, Milo will complete his transport to his foster home in Baton Rouge. Once he is comfortable, we will get him to the vet to get blood work done, along with a much needed dental and we are sure he will lose infected teeth. Even with his rough journey lately, being blind and changing multiple hands, and not know what was going on and who to trust, Milo has been a champ through it all. He does love to be attended to and talked to.

The bad pictures are of Milo when he was first brought to the shelter after being on his own. The cuter one is, of course, after the shelter trimmed and bathed him. Once we get him in his permanent foster home, he will get to visit the professional groomer and photographer and we will show you just what a handsome boy Milo can be. Basically, all dogs ask for in life is food, grooming, vetting and love. We don’t feel this is too much to ask for from a companion that never asked to be brought into this world but was purchased as a young pup to give a human. Then, WHAM, when they need us the most, …….. the humans cannot give that in return. That is where rescue comes in. Seems we can pick forever homes MUCH BETTER than the majority of breeders who sell them in the beginning. Harsh, I think not! Proven!

Milo will be letting you know more about his personality, needs and wants as we get to know him better. Stay tuned!

9/24/20 - It's been a long time since Pacino has updated you and that's because he has been so busy loving life.  Although he is getting older, not much has changed in his energy department and as you can see by his new pics, he doesn't look any older.  His foster mom says he still acts as if he is 6.  He did just start some new medicine though.  It's called Proin.  Seems Pacino is having trouble tinkling when he is sleeping.  The vet is trying this to see if will help.  Foster mom is noticing that his eyesight and hearing are lacking a little, but that happens to everyone with age.


He also takes Phenobarbital for seizures and, thankfully, hasn't had any seizures since he's been on the medicine.  He takes 1 15 mg pill twice daily.


He doesn't really play with any of the other dogs in his foster home.  He does love car rides and going for walks.  He loves breakfast and supper time and is a very fast eater

Other than that, Pacino is a happy, healthy boy and if you ask him, he has many years left.  Want to give an older guy a happy home?  Pacino loves everyone and even though he loves foster mom, he wouldn't mind changing addresses if it would give him a last name.


7/15/19 - Pacino is a sweetheart of a guy. He definitely doesn\'t act, look or feel his age. The guy seems more like 7 years old. He is a bigger, longer bodied boy, but still small enough to pick up and love. He loves giving kisses and is very in tune with his people. Since his bladder stone surgery, he eats a prescription diet. If there are other pups in the home, Pacino would have to be put up to eat since he is food aggressive with other dogs. We aren\'t sure where this stemmed from, but it is an easy fix, just put in a room to eat or a crate. If there aren\'t any other dogs in the home, which Pacino would absolutely love, there is no need to put him up while eating. He is fine with the other dogs all other times, so could co-exist or be the only big baby. We have just noticed a growth on Pacino\'s leg by his front left shoulder, and will be getting it checked out and removed soon, along with a tiny sty on the inside of his bottom eyelid. Pacino would be a great addition to a laid back home with or without dogs where he can be loved and give love.\r\n\r\n\r\n6/21/19 - Pacino has been in his foster home for a while now and wants to give everyone an update. You would not be able to guess his age if you met him because he acts so young at heart and has energy to burn. His legs are like springs and he can bounce very high. He needs a big secure yard to run and play in and owners that can watch him when the front door is open since he is very curious and tempted to run. The perfect home for Pacino would be where he could be the only pup or with one other calm dog since he loves getting a lot of attention. He does have Napoleon tendencies at feeding time, so he eats separately and isn’t let out until everyone is finished so as not to have any fights.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nPlease give Pacino a chance at a home where he is the main man and he will not disappoint you.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n3/20/19 - Now since I am feeling better, foster mom said that it is time for me to tell the world about myself. Well, my name is Pacino, as in Al Pacino. My previous mom could not keep me any longer due to life changes, so my new foster mom stepped in to give me a place to call my own until she could find me my real home. Shortly after coming to live with her, she realized I had bladder stones and needed immediate surgery. That was done and now I feel so much better. I will have to stay on a prescription diet food (Royal Canin Urinary SO hard food) from now on so they won�t return, but it�s fine because I like my new food. \r\n\r\nI eat twice daily and need to eat alone. I tend to be a bit of a terminator if another dog comes around while I am trying to enjoy by kibble. So, it�s much easier if I just eat alone and stay up until all the other furbabies are finished eating.\r\n\r\nI�m ok around children as long as they are older and don�t get too chaotic or want to pull on my ears or tail. And I do like to give the humans, old or young, kisses.\r\n\r\nI would love to sleep in bed with my humans and I promise I will not take up too much of the bed or covers.\r\n\r\nI get very attached to my humans and love getting and giving attention. I can also be a great coach potato if you want to snuggle and cuddle for some movies. I also like playing with toys. My potty training is coming along, and I will use pee pads, but foster mom still catches me marking at times. So, I�m not perfect.\r\n\r\nI will bark when I�m excite or when the other dogs bark, it isn�t crazy obsessive. I�m a little timid around the vacuum cleaner but getting more used to it. I have very strong legs and can jump on the furniture to be with you.\r\n\r\nI do have terrier in me, so I will have to be put up or picked up if someone is at the door because I will take that opportunity to run off. The unknown just looks so exciting.\r\n\r\nI wouldn�t mind another doggy to play with, but they shouldn�t be too rough because I can get offended easily. I might be 10 years old, but I don�t know it and I have energy to play. That doesn�t mean that I can turn right around and nap or cuddle with my humans.\r\n\r\nI just an all-around great boy that is in the prime of my life. I�m up for a walk, a nap or basically whatever you want. First, you have to apply to adopt me and then we can discuss adventures.\r\n\r\n2/24/19 - Thanks to all of you, Pacino had his bladder stone surgery Friday and is doing well. We are so happy for this little man. His foster mom picked him up yesterday and its as if he never had surgery. It\'s amazing what these babies can endure. He will have a recheck in about a week to have a urinalysis and see if all is well, then schedule his dental and he will get a microchip at that time. Pacino said to tell everyone thank you and we will be posting a bio soon to tell about his personality.\r\n\r\n\r\n2/14/19 - Pacino needs immediate surgery for bladder stones! \r\n Please consider donating to Pacino so we can get him comfortable. He was surrendered by his owner because she did not have time for him. He is in a foster home now and ready to have surgery and start feeling better. PLEASE HELP US HELP PACINO!!!

Weight: 7
Location: NC
Adoption Fee: $250


For more information on Bubbles, contact foster parent at: yorkiemommync@yahoo.com

Apply To Adopt Bubbles
8/5/2020 - Bubbles is doing really well right now.  Her prognosis after her relapse was very guarded because usually pups do not fair well when a relapse occurs.  She is pretty much back to her normal self, bossy and going at the others if they do something she does not approve of.  Bubbles will always need to be under the care of a specialist.  She is currently on prednisone every other day and a chemo drug every other day, which will likely be for the protocol for the rest of her time.  She sees the specialist when she is not feeling well and then every couple months for bloodwork and to make sure everything is still ok.  The chemo drug can cause other health issues, hence the reason for continued care with her specialist.

10/24/19 - Bubbles is having some GI issues again. She has been throwing up for a week or two and none of the anti-nausea meds have been helping. She had an ultrasound today and her pancreas looked inflamed and portions of her intestines looked inflamed as well. Her bloodwork was also indicative of GI issues. Her belly also filled with fluid yesterday and has not gone down. The liquid is clear and likely her body storing water. We are starting her on a round of steroids and antibiotics and will wait for the review of the ultrasound by a radiologist And some additional bloodwork and urine check. She may need an endoscopy or biopsy to get a better idea of what is going on, but we need to wait for the inflammation to go down and her to feel better before doing so.

4/15/19 – Bubbles is still the same little girl! She has been doing great on her prescription food and has not had any issues. She does still have moments where she loses her self confidence and will bite, we say she is like Jekyll and Hyde. She will also go after the other dogs if she does not want them around or is protecting a bone or toy or spot on the couch. She can also be very loving and happy and wanting all the attention she can get. She just has her moments sometimes.


7/5/16 � Bubbles is still feisty as ever. She loves to play with her foster brothers, she just isn�t 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 �The Princess to The Pauper�

In my previous life, I was the only furchild of a single, elderly lady who loved me unconditionally. We did everything together�went 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 didn�t 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 back�as 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 �The Princess to The Pauper�.
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 �Devil Dog�.

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!
Bubbles

8/20/20 - I'VE BEEN ADOPTED!!

4/15/19 – Rio has been with us for a couple of months now. His previous mommy had to surrender him because he is on seizure medication three times a day and she was having to start a job away from home, so she would not be able to give him his medicine. He was previously having seizures about once a month. His foster parents have not seen him have any seizures while in their home, which means he has not had a seizure since the end of October. Yay Rio!! He is a such a sweet and loving little boy. Everyone that meets his says how sweet and loving he is. He turned one year old on December 2, 2018. Being he is still a puppy, he does love to chew on toys, or shoes, or pee pads, or soft cloth items he should not chew on, but does stop if you tell him to. His foster home just makes sure the things he likes to chew on are picked up and that he has bones and toys to chew on instead. He also likes to be with other dogs and has started trying to play with his foster brothers and sisters. He has been known to bark when his people leave the house if he is all alone, but if a foster brother or sister is left out with him he does not bark at all. As mentioned at the beginning, he does requires seizure medication three times a day, but does not have any problems taking his meds. If you are looking for a young, loving, sweetheart of a pup, then Rio is the perfect pup for you.

3/23/2020 - Baxter is doing fantastic! We have found that he can be very pushy with other males. He would probably do best with another female pup or two. He loves to play and loves to run in the yard and chase squirrels and lizards!
He is a stinker about marking in the house so he will need to wear belly bands. Perhaps in time it might be better, but we never guarantee that.
He is a sweet little cuddly boy who loves to sleep snuggled up with his foster mom.
He knows how to sit, down and roll over! Cute as a bug. :)


11/5/2019 - UPDATE! Baxter's exam and x ray went well. His leg is healed and we can schedule him for his dental and neuter! We are SO excited for Baxter and SO happy we were able to save his leg. Thank you to all who donated towards his surgery and care!

10/24/2019 - Baxter is recovering well from his surgery. He will have xrays in a few more weeks to make sure the healing is complete. Then, a dental and neuter and he will be ready for his furever home! He is a happy go lucky boy who would love to have at least one other fur sibling who hopefully would love to play!

9/14/2019 - Baxter's surgery is scheduled for September 18th. Prayers appreciated.

9/4/19 - Hello Everyone. My name is Baxter, and I am a new resident at Yorkie Haven Rescue. In my previous home, there was an unfortunate incident in May and my back left leg was broken. My family was unable to get the surgery that I desperately needed. A vet put a splint on it, but it never healed. A family friend found Yorkie Haven Rescue and they agreed to help me. They say a wonderful lady who loves yorkies paid for my long trip to Houston; and, a very nice man who also loves yorkies flew with me. He was a lot of fun and very kind to me on my long journey even taking me to Starbucks for a Puppacino. It was yummy!

They say my leg is pretty messed up and that I will need bone grafting and a plate in my leg. I am hoping that the doctor can repair my leg, so I would love it if anyone reading this would say some prayers that it is still able to be fixed.

After I have surgery and all the other vetting that I need, I hear that YHR is going to be looking for a home for me where I will be very spoiled.

I am a lap baby and would love a home that either mom or dad are home a lot and want to spend time watching tv with me, talking short walks, playing outside, playing inside and napping with me. I also like going for car rides

I'm a little timid with loud noises. But I'm such a tiny little tyke big noises or too much chaos scares me. A home that is relaxed and laid back with a human or humans who love to cuddle would be right up my alley. I've been around small children, but a home without them would be better for me since I'm so small and get underfoot.

I hear that we are currently accepting applications for my new parent(s), but it will be a little while before I can join them. I have to be neutered, get a dental, and the main thing, fix my leg. Don't forget, say some prayers for me. I'll say some for you too.

Kisses, Baxter!

8/26/2920 - Cash's recent blood work was normal!! He is doing very well. To read more about him, scroll down to the post of 2/10.

7/28/2020 - Cash is on one more round of antibiotics due to elevated white count. Urine culture was negative. If this round of antibiotics does not clear this he will be referred to specialist.

6/23/2020 - UPDATE: Cash was discharged from the hospital yesterday evening and is doing well, eating and taking his medications. His liver enzymes dropped and one is actually in normal limits. They are thinking all of this was due to an infection. He will be following up with our vet. At this time they don't think liver biopsies are needed!

6/20/2020 - Cash had an ultrasound today that revealed multiple liver nodules and gall bladder inflammation. His lab studies continue to be abnormal. He was admitted to the Emergency Dept at the specialty hospital and will remain there until Monday when they will transfer him to Internal Med Service.

He has not eaten well this past week and is generally just not feeling well.

His bill at this point is $3736 and that is not including the past week at the general vet; so his costs are rising.
ANY donation is greatly appreciated to help us help Cash.

6/15/2020 - Cash began feeling ill this weekend. His foster mom took him to the Emergency Clinic today and he was found to have anemia, infection of unknown origin and elevated liver enzymes. Also elevated bile acids. He is being referred to Internal Med Specialist for ultrasound of his liver. We will update as we know more.

2/10/2019 - Hi, my name is Cash and I'm from Texas. Yep, a Texas sized Yorkie with a Texas sized bark. Still a lover though. You kind of have to hear my bark to believe it is coming out of this little body. I think someone mixed a little raspy doberman in my vocal cords. So, don't expect any cute Tinkerbell tunes to be coming out of this body. Speaking of my body, since I'm getting a little up in age, I was having some trouble at night when I was sleeping with wetting myself. It was so embarrassing and all the other dogs would just get up and move away from me. I talked to foster mom about it and she and the vet started me on something called Proin and now I wake as dry as the Sahara Desert. Whew! No more getting made fun of.

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.

7/11/2020 - Daisy is a special needs pup. She has allergies, IBD, and is in early stage renal failure.
She is well controlled on medications and prescription foods.


September 18, 2019 - Daisy is now on prednisone daily for IBD. She is eating RX foods now and doing very well!

August 31, 2019 - Daisy, just can't catch a break. She was initially improving after the last hospitalization; but then started having issues last week. She has been in and out of the vet. She refused food last night and this morning, so she was back at the vet this morning and her blood work once again had abnormalities. Her vet referred her to Gulf Coast Veterinary Internal Medicine and Critical Care where she was admitted
She will be there for 3 - 5 days. Hopefully, we can get her to where she is feeling better and find a food she can tolerate. That has been a huge issue. She has renal issues, IBD and pancreatitis so finding the right diet is beyond challenging.
Estimate for 36-48 hours is $2462
Donations and prayers so appreciated~

August 17, 2019 - After two days of fluids, Daisy is feeling better. We are having to change her diet again.
In spite of all of her medical issues, Daisy is a very happy and friendly pup! She loves to go out shopping!

August 16, 2019 - Daisy is back in the hospital today on IV fluids. She has pancreatitis. Will update as we know more. Prayers and donations appreciated.

August 7, 2019 - Daisy's biopsy came back with a diagnosis of IBD. Meds and a diet change are the current plans. She is doing well at present!

July 30, 2019 - Daisy had an endoscopy this morning. We will have biopsy reports in 5-7 days. Her stomach looked fine but there was inflammation in the small intestine.

July 25, 2019 - Daisy has been seen by her internist and an endoscopy has been scheduled.

July 12, 2019 - Daisy was discharged from the hospital today and will be following up with the specialist in 10 - 14 days. Her blood work was much better, she is now well hydrated and the bloody stools have ceased. She is eating well which is a good sign! She is on multiple meds for her gastrointestinal issues. Thank you to everyone for your donations and kind messages and prayers for Daisy. Thankfully nothing awful was seen on her xrays and ultrasound...she will probably need further testing in the future but for now they want her to recover from this latest issue.

July 10, 2019 - Daisy was admitted today to ICU at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists with a diagnosis of HGE (hemorrhagic gastroenteritis) and secondary pancreatitis. Daisy has multiple medical issues that have made adoption difficult. We do not have a "furever ours" program because we believe there is always a home for each pup. Sometimes it takes longer to find the right home and sometimes it doesn't come; but, our foster homes know that and take in pups fully aware of this. Our foster homes are thoroughly screened just like our adopers so our foster pups are in great hands always! Daisy has a history of gastro issues and is on a very low fat diet, she is on meds for allergies, and she has PLN (protein losing nephropathy). She now has a grade 2 heart murmur which was just picked up today. She was seen one month ago and did not have that. The plan for Daisy is: Xrays, blood work, echocardiogram and cardiology consult, ultrasound of abdomen, blood work being done.

6/4/18 - Daisy would really love to be the only furbaby in the home. She doesnt 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 dont 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. You've got to give an A for effort though.\\r\\n\\r\\n


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 wouldnt 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. 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. Shes 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 isn't 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 wont 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 doesnt 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 healed and ready to go. So...... she trotted right home and packed her bags. Wow, talk about wanting a new family. Lol As you have likely read, Daisy's 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 couldn't 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, If you have the time, I have the stamina. And latex squeaky balls are her fetch of choiceShe 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 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 ready to go. 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!

9/28/20 - Daisy Lynn is settling in to her foster home quit nicely.  She has graduated to the big bed with her humans and she LOVES it.   She is eating good and we are pleased as she needs to gain a little.  She will have accidents sometimes, but will always go when brought outside.  When her foster mom has to go out, she will leave her in an area with a potty pad and she seems to find it and use it.  Smarty pants!  She rides ok, but does want to be near her person.  We were letting her get comfortable, but will be setting up her vet appointment for her necessary shots, etc.

9/16/20 - Daisy Lynn and her foster mom left the Veterinary Eye Institute in Dallas, Tx around 8:30.  We will be getting a formal report tomorrow and will be in a better position to give a more accurate update, but the short summary is that Daisy Lynn's right eye had an ulcer that ruptured previously.  It has already tried to protect/heal itself and scarred over.  She is not squinting, blinking or trying to avoid light, so they do not believe this eye is uncomfortable at this point.

Her left eye, the one that we referred to as bulging, has a mature cataract and glaucoma.  The doctor said that her pressure in that eye is lower than normal, so there is no scare there of doggy migraines or pain.   

At this point, we can discontinue the eye medicine that was originally prescribed for the other group and our doctor is starting her on Ketorolac to be administered to both eyes twice daily just to help with any inflammation.

There isn't a surgery that will help her, she is totally blind in both eyes, but she isn't in any pain and he feels she is quite used to her situation.  We are sure that at some point both eyes truly hurt her and that is sad to think about, so we will focus on the present and just give her all the love and attention she can stand.  We had hoped that there would be something that could help her see, but at least she isn't in pain and is probably already used to her blindness.

We will update personality after we have had about a week to see her true colors come out.  Thank you to everyone who prayed and everyone who donated.  She won't arrive home until about 10:30 tonight and then will be ready to curl up for a long night's sleep.  



9/15/20 - Daisy Lynn was picked up stray and brought to a shelter in Shreveport, Louisiana.  They knew right away that she needed to be out of the shelter and in a rescue group, so they reached out Carley's Angels, Senior Sanctuary and Hospice who immediately picked her up.  They got her cleaned up and then could really tell the extent of her eye problems.  She has an ulcerated right eye and her left eye is bulging.  Knowing that they would not be able to get the medical attention this little girl needed, they quickly reached out to Yorkie Haven Rescue and one of our foster homes left almost as soon as she got the call.  We are in the process of getting the vet in Shreveport to send over a referral to the eye specialist in Plano, Tx and schedule an appointment as soon as we can get it.


We are not sure exactly what we are going to be looking at in terms of if she can have surgery and save 1 or both of her eyes or if she is even a candidate, but we do know that we have to do everything we can to give this young girl the comfort and eyes she should have.  The ones she had before whatever happened to them took place.


We do not know much about her currently in terms of personality right now since foster mom just picked her up tonight, but as soon as she is more comfortable and we can access her, we will update.  Right now, all we are focusing on is getting this appointment set and seeing if we can shed new light on this baby's eyes.  


We don't even have an estimate right now, but donations would be greatly appreciated.  We know that they way things are right now, not everyone can donate, but please pray for Daisy Lynn as prayers are just as important.

6/27/2020 - We have found that Harley needs a Cytopoint injection every 4 - 6 weeks for allergies/itching. He also needs to be bathed weekly.

3/30/2020 - We have found that Harley has recurrent skin
issues/allergies. Cytopoint has helped the itch, but his hair gets super oily only a few days after a bath. We are trying different shampoos to see what may work.

1/27/2020 - Well, this is one we in rescue have heard so many times. Girl gets yorkie and he is her baby, girl gets married years later and has human baby, and the four legged baby must go. :(

Unfortunately for Harley, the date they chose to let him go was Thanksgiving. We have promised Harley that his next Thanksgiving will be full of love, belly rubs, kisses and treats with a family that will never give him up.

Harley is a sweet boy and sleeps on a pillow next to his foster mom's head. He gets along well with the easy going pups in the house, cuddling with a couple of them from time to time. He tends to be a bit nervous around a lot of activity, so we are looking for a quiet household.

He is very good about going outside to go to the bathroom and comes right back inside. He goes to the door and looks at his foster mom to let him out. Keep in mind that sometimes they do have accidents and things can vary from home to home so don't expect perfection in the housebreaking department!

Harley does have some skin issues due to allergies. This was reported to us when he was surrendered. He recently had some issues and responded well to Cytopoint.

His teeth were a mess when he came to us and a dental was done where he ended up losing 22 teeth. He recovered quickly and eats very well! He is on canned food with some water mixed in.

Harley's blood work looked very good. He does not seem to have any issues other than allergies ... oh, and he does have luxating patellas which is common in yorkies. Best to keep him from jumping up and down on things. Harley walks up steps to his foster mom's furniture!

This is a charming little guy with a whole lot of love to share with someone. <3

1/3/2020 - Harley is a 10 year old owner surrender.

Apply To Adopt Mickey
May 9, 2020 - Mickey is showing his age. He sleeps quite a bit but feisty when awake and eats well. He can be nippy if not handled carefully. He is on meds for his back, gi issues and also on desmopressin eye drops for a disorder with the anti diuretic hormone.
He is a sweet boy who just doesn't like to be handled too much. It must be on his terms and he is very vocal when he wants attention! :)

March 29, 2019 - Mickey sure has had a bit of a rough time. He was having symptoms of pain on his right side and xrays revealed some that he has some compressed discs in his spine. Because of his reflux he is not a candidate for anti inflammatory meds, so he is on Gabopentin which does seem to help.

He was seen by a board certified dentist today because he is a higher anesthesia risk due to his reflux, regurgitation and also collapsed trachea.. He still has the fractured tooth and also needs a dental although his teeth are not dreadful for his age. We don't know if he had dentals in the past or if he just is one of the rare yorkies with good teeth. His is scheduled for April 15. Prior to that we will have blood work and chest xray done.

On top of it all, he is having recurring ear infections. He will be seeing a vet dermatologist for this. He had his ear packed again today....he has been treated back to back four times now...as soon as it clears up he gets another. The thought is that it may be due to allergies. Hopefully the dermatologist can get to the bottom of it all so Mickey won't have this discomfort.



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 someone'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 - Who�s the leader of the club that�s 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 in�.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 � the doctor said I must have hit the genetic jackpot since yorkies usually have bad teeth she said. I had horribly infected ears�.they have cleared up nicely.

I get along with the other pups in my foster home; but, I don�t 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. Don�t forget�.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.

10/20/20 - Ricky had surgery today to repair his torn cruciate ligament. Surgery went very well!

10/17/2020 - Ricky is a new foster pup who was just surrendered to YHR. Sadly, a rescue in Texas placed him in a home a few days ago without disclosing that he needed surgery. The adopter contacted them right away when he was unable to use that leg and they gave different stories until finally they admitted he had a torn cruciate ligament; but they then said it was ok to leave him with his leg like this. They had taken him to the vet and had xrays done but did nothing! Very sad!

The adopter was not prepared for this expense and reached out to us to surrender him because they didn't want him to go back to a rescue that would not help him.

We will be taking Ricky to our surgeon this coming week for surgery to repair his knee.

Donations and prayers for Ricky appreciated.

VERY SPECIAL & SWEET SENIOR BOY!

3/13/20 - Tiny had some problems with anesthesia so his dental was not done. He will be seen by a specialist to evaluate and make a decision of what to do about his teeth.

1/27/2020 - If you are looking for a senior with a lot of love to give, Tiny is your man! We are SO happy to have been able to save this precious boy!

He is still being treated for hookworms (second round of treatment) and then we will be checking his bloodwork again to see if we can proceed with his dental. Poor little guy has such awful teeth. He is on canned food with water added and eats like a champ! He gets so excited at meal time! We imagine it will be even better once those awful teeth are gone.

He does sleep a lot due to his age, but when awake he is a happy little guy who gets around just fine. He doesn't ask to go outside but his foster mom takes him out every couple of hours and he immediately goes to the bathroom as soon as his feet hit the ground! He has had a couple of accidents but only because he was not taken out when he needed to be....he needs to go outside right after he wakes up and after he eats!

His vision is probably limited because he has some cataracts and atrophy of his irises; but, he can see to get around.

He cowers a bit when approached. Not sure if this is due to his limited vision or something in his past history. He clearly was not cared for at least in recent years. He is starting to come to his foster mom when she calls him by name.

He sleeps in his foster mom's bed. He is picked up and put on the bed and put back down in the morning. He does not wake up early, so he doesn't attempt to get off of the bed.

We are hopeful that we can find a home where Tiny will be loved for the rest of his life...he may have many years left. We surely hope so because we would love to make up for the neglect he suffered previously.

1/12/2020 - Tiny is coming along. Poor guy had hookworms on top of everything else. He just had his 3rd day of treatment and he is perking up quite a bit! We are sure this is what caused his anemia. He was sleeping a lot but much more alert now! He loves to go outside! We will get some pics of him walking around.
Once he is better and blood work is improved, he will have a much needed dental.
Thank you for helping us save this little man!


1/6/2020 - Tiny did have some alterations in his blood work He was anemic but it could be due to having fleas. He is eating well. We are going to give him a couple of weeks to eat and rest and then will repeat labs. He also is on antibiotics.


1/3/2020 - Tiny was going to be taken to a shelter by his owner when someone stepped in and picked him up and called us. He was transported to Houston yesterday and saw our vet this morning.
Some of what he has that we know of are the following:
skin infection, cataracts and atrophy of the irises, luxating patellas, ear infection, ear mites, small cyst on head, loose and terribly infected teeth and he is underweight.
We will know more tomorrow when we get blood and urine results.

12/27/2019 - Timmy is a special needs pup. He is on a prescription diet (Royal Canin Urinary SO) and thyroid supplement. He enjoys being hand fed. We know that his gall bladder is full of stones, but he has never had any issues with them; and the specialist advised to leave it alone as long as he is not ill. He walks slower these days and needs some assistance over door jams and the like.
He sleeps cuddled up next to his foster mom.
His hair is very thin so he wears shirts for warmth. He has recurrent skin issues and needs to be bathed every couple of days in prescription shampoo.
Timmy is will go outside to pee but will still lift his leg in his foster home.
Despite all of these things, Timmy is a sweet little love of a pup and would be happy to be held 24 hours/day!

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.
