4/7/19 - Hi, it's Carly. Mom brought me for an updated photo shoot since I'm so much cuter than I was when I first arrived. The photographer said I was an excellent model. I hope you enjoy my new pictures. I'm still waiting on my forever family to come along. But foster mom loves me and says I cannot go unless it is the perfect fit for me. I'm a sensitive little girl who loves all adults. Speaking of sensitive, my belly is a little sensitive as well, so the vet put me on Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Low Fat soft food and I haven't had an upset belly since. I do not have any teeth left, but gobble my soft food down and LOVE it.

I better go, it's almost supper time. Enjoy my pictures.


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.

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 dont 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 Im a tad overweight. Im on a diet now and even though this doesnt please me, Im 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!

Im doing well in the potty department, but will probably have accidents at first when I move again. Even though Im old and a little wider than tall, I really enjoy going for a walk. If you so much as pick up the leash, Im 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 dont 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. Its a yorkie thing. Im 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; Id really enjoy being an only dog or with another that doesnt 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!

5/19/19 - I'VE BEEN ADOPTED!


3/13/19 - HAPPY EARLY EASTER EVERYONE! My name is Miss Tillie. It's really just Tillie, but my foster mom thinks it's cute to call me Miss Tillie. She says that I deserve to have Miss in front of my name because of all the babies I was forced to have in my young 6 years of life to make sure and keep the money flow alive in the breeding world. Even though I made some adorable babies, over and over and over again, foster mom says that I am in retirement now. She said that means that I will just be a loved baby girl now and will not make money for ANYONE and will not have any more puppies. I think I'm going to like this retirement thing.

When I first got to foster mom and dad's house, I was very shy, scared, skittish, deer in headlights, spooked dog. As most breeder dogs, I did not get continuous positive human contact and that learned behavior takes a while to get rid of and learn that it's a dog's world out here now and not everyone wants money and puppies from me. Foster dad said that my next humans will only want to give me love, patience and spoil me, not themselves. WOW! I sure did luck out. I pray that all my babies that I produced are as lucky as I am right now.

I am coming around daily, but still have some unpacking of my tangled baggage yet to dispose of. I'm a very good eater, I look at you every time you call my name and have learned to love sleeping in this big square thing called the "human bed" at night. When the humans and other dogs are getting in, I will go up to the side of the bed and raise up and let foster mom pick me up and put me in. I also let her rub my head and body at this time. It's the most contact we have. I go outside well and am learning to use the bathroom in the grass, but you must have a very secure yard as I'm still nervous and if there was an inkling of a way out, I would take advantage of it.

I love when foster mom and dad talk to me and when foster mom is in the tub (and I know she can't grab me, lol), I will even go up for a lick. Even though I have come a very long way in the three weeks that I've been here, I'm still very timid at times and I will not go up to my foster parents freely in the house and I will not allow them to pick me up. That still scares me. I just know that all of my fears will eventually go away. I will just need a home that understands what I've been through and isn't that eager to have me come out of my shell. These things take time and I have to do it at my own pace.

A home with no children of any age would be better for me since I cannot handle a home that is very active. I would like a fur-sister or fur-brother though. I don't want to play with them, but this helps me be more at ease with my humans. Breeder dogs like myself learn from watching and if you are nice and love your present furry companion, I will be eager to have that.

I may not be perfect right now, but foster mom says I'm pretty close and there isn't anyone out there that doesn't have some issues. I'm just upfront about all of mine. Refreshing isn't it?

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 members 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.

Mochas 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 arent put in a position that would cause him to be uncomfortable. He truly needs a non-active, calm home where someone can sense his cujo 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 Mochas future aggression and need for consistency. Once you learn his personality and shortcomings, owning and loving him really isnt 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 isnt 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 arent put in a position that would cause him to be uncomfortable. Such as, we know he doesnt 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 Mochas 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.

3/20/19 - 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 wont return, but its fine because I like my new food.

I 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, its much easier if I just eat alone and stay up until all the other furbabies are finished eating.

Im ok around children as long as they are older and dont get too chaotic or want to pull on my ears or tail. And I do like to give the humans, old or young, kisses.

I would love to sleep in bed with my humans and I promise I will not take up too much of the bed or covers.

I 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, Im not perfect.

I will bark when Im excite or when the other dogs bark, it isnt crazy obsessive. Im 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.

I 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.

I wouldnt mind another doggy to play with, but they shouldnt be too rough because I can get offended easily. I might be 10 years old, but I dont know it and I have energy to play. That doesnt mean that I can turn right around and nap or cuddle with my humans.

I just an all-around great boy that is in the prime of my life. Im 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.

2/24/19 - 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.


2/14/19 - Pacino needs immediate surgery for bladder stones!
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!!!

4/28/19 - Don't get me wrong, I love my foster home, but I'm a little offended that I haven't been adopted yet. I see all these dogs come into the program and get adopted before me. Is it because I'm older? Is it because my tongue sticks out? Is it because my legs look like a deer's legs? Is it because I'm clingy? Is it because I need someone home with me more? Well, I can't change these things and I don't want to. You have to love me for me. That's what foster mom says. I'm a really awesome guy.

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: Tiny�s 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 vet�s office, so they gave her a call and we took Tiny in.

Tiny�s 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 can�t find him, he�ll 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 � 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.

3/25/19 - Hi all you Yorkie Lovers: It�s Yogi Bear! I came to foster mom's a week ago and was very sad to be leaving my family, but they were moving and could not take me with them. I�m the kind of fella that is dedicated to my people, so it is taking me a little while to get over them walking away and driving out of sight. Foster mom keeps telling me that she is going to find me another family and I will never have to start over again after that. I sure hope so, this one hit me hard. I�m one of those that promises to love, honor and cherish for life and I want the same from my human companions.

I�m am a sweetheart of a guy who needs another dog or two to play with. After moving again and warming up and getting comfortable, I will be ready to play with a friend. I�m a good eater, love sleeping in bed with my humans, adore being carried around, kissed on, loved on, doted on�.. you get the hint. Til death do us part kind of relationship and I will follow you to the moon and back. Well, at least all around the house and to the bathroom. Lol I�m ok with older children, but will take the opportunity to run off is a door is ajar, so it has to be a household that isn�t too rowdy and too much activity.

It would be spectacular if I had a parent or parents that work from home or are retired since I have a little anxiety with my people leaving me. I�d also love a fenced in yard since I sometimes need to lay out and get my Vitamin D and chase some squirrels and birds on occasion. Gosh, listening to myself, I sound a little demanding. That isn�t usually my personality, but since my last break-up, I want to make sure I put everything out on the table and let you know what I will bring to the relationship and what I expect you to bring. Honesty is the best policy. Signing off for now. Yogi, smarter than your average Yorkie.

ZOEY IS A YORKIE/CHIHUAHUA MIX!

3/18/19 - Foster mom said it was time for another photo shoot since I was practically bald when I first arrived. Now I have a full body of hair. It's amazing what good food, good beauty products and asking the fleas to take up residence in another location will do. Not to toot my own horn, but I am just about the most perfect Chorkie ever. I'm loving, attentive, caring, eat good, use the pee pads in the house, do my business outside when we are out, sleep excellent (as long as I am sleeping near my human), am good for a bath and blow dry..... Well, I could be here all day telling you all the good things about me.

If I had to tell you the cons, the only things I can think of is that I love to lick. If you sit long enough, I like to lick you arm, legs, hand, anything exposed to let you know how much I love you. Some might think that is annoying, foster mom and dad don't care. They rock! I also have the very high pitched alien sound that I make when you are fixing breakfast and supper and when you leave the house. I guess it's my bark, but it comes out very weird. So, that's it. That's the only two things I can think of that could possibly be negative. I personally don't see them as negative, so I'm kinda perfect in my own eyes. Oh, foster mom says that you will need to be perfect too if you plan on being my parent(s). Adult only home please, I want all the attention. Thanks!


8/29/18 - Dont hate me because Im beautiful. Can I help it if I am just a natural beauty? Lets see. 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!!

Zoeys dad brought her to the local animal control explaining that the kids were all grown up now and his wife didnt want her anymore. 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 doesnt 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.

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!

4/15/19 – Joey’s previous owners were an elderly couple that unfortunately got sick and have been unable to take care of Joey for a couple of months. It is uncertain whether his previous family would be able to take care of him when they got better, so the extended family decided it would be in Joey’s best interest to find him a new family. For the first months his family was away he stayed at the home and someone just came in once a day to give him food and water. It could be that or the fact that his family was always with him previously, but Joey has a bit of separation anxiety. He barks when his people leave. Sometimes he does this most of the time they are gone and sometimes it is only for a little while. We are unsure if he will get over this given what he has been through over the past several months. Also, with him being left in the house and not taken out regularly and the fact that he was just neutered at a later age, he does have tendency to pee in the house. He has been wearing belly bands at his foster home and does not have an issue with them and he will potty outside when he goes out. He has not had any issues with his foster brothers and sisters, but does tend to prefer people over the other pups. He came from a home that had dogs, cats, and birds. He has been around a bird in his current foster home and did not even care that it was there. Joey loves his people and would do great with other animals in the home too. Given his separation anxiety it would probably be best for him to be with someone that is home a good portion of the time to keep his stress level down until he can maybe get better with his separation anxiety.

4/14/2019 - Mia was discharged from the hospital the evening following her surgery and is recovering in her foster home. Thank you again to everyone who helped us save Mia!

4/10/19 - YHR received a telephone call today from a vet in NC who was extremely worried about one of her patients. Mia's family had taken her in because she was very ill and she was diagnosed with pyometra. She needed immediate surgery! The owners could not afford the surgery and were going to take her home where she would have suffered more and died. They agreed to surrender to a rescue but would not euthanize her if a rescue could not take her. Needless to say the vet was upset and reached out to us.

We desperately need donations for her surgery, but we could not wait...she had the surgery and is now at the emergency clinic for observation overnight. Poor Mia has teeth that are in horrible shape (7 basically fell out during her surgery...she will need a dental in the future and will probably lose all of her teeth) and she also has pneumonia which the vet thinks is due to the vomiting she was doing (she probably aspirated).

Anything you can do to help us help Mia is appreciated, whether $5 or $500 ... it all adds up!

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.

3/4/19 - Riley had his surgery and has been discharged to his foster home. He is feeling much better and thanks to all of you who helped Riley get his surgery so quickly. It was very much needed since there were a total of 16 stones in that little baby's bladder.


2/25/19 - Our sweet Riley has been having some medical issues and the vet thought it was due to Cushings. After quite a bit of testing, that was ruled out; but, it took some time, so we decided to get him to a specialist to see if we could get to the bottom of what was going on with him. He also had repeated skin issues, so we had him evaluated by a dermatologist on the same day he was seen by the Internal Med specialist. Seems Riley has an enlarged liver. He did an ultrasound and found that Riley has bladder stones.

As far as the bladder stones and enlarged liver, we have him scheduled for 2/27/19 with Upstate Veterinary Specialists to have surgery to remove the stones and take a liver biopsy at the same time. Thanks to everyone who has donated to Rileys care and made it possible for us to schedule this surgery so quickly and help Riley get out of pain.

On the skin issues, Riley received a Cytopoint shot which is something that he will continue to get (usually every 6-12 weeks, depending on when itching reoccurs). He does get occasional staph infections from his allergy issues, but those are usually treated with antibiotics and special shampoo as they flare up.

2/5/19 - Riley has been scheduled to see a dermatologist for his itching and little sores that he frequently gets and an internal medicine doctor for some other medical issues that we want to clear up. Both of these appointments are scheduled for 2/19/19. After these appointments and whatever testing they recommend, we hope to have an updated bio on Riley that will let us know exactly where he stands medically and what, if any, medicine or procedures need to be taken/done. Riley has had a lot of interest and we are sorry that he cannot be adopted until we are certain where his medical state stands. We just want to be sure that we are able to enlighten any potential adopter to his medical state and needs for the future.



1/18/19 - Some additional testing is being done to ascertain if Riley has Cushings and we should have the results back soon and will then update his bio with exactly what his medical issues are.


12/14/18 - Riley has been to the vet and is having some medical testing done. He is currently on Apoquel for allergies and being tested to rule out thyroid issues and/or cushings.


12/13/18 - BIO COMING SOON!

ARIEL HAS MET HER GOAL FOR SURGERY!!
She sends yorkie kisses to all of her supporters!!

June 4, 2019 - Ariel had her CT scan and is scheduled for surgery on her left leg on June 21, 2019. The other leg will be done after she has recovered from the first.
We are so thankful for our wonderful supporters who have made this possible for this precious pup!

May 14, 2019 - Ariel saw the surgeon this past week and he was happy to see the improvement in her muscle contractures and her level of ambulation. X-rays were done and Ariel has luxating patellas which are a grade 4. We have discussed this at length with our regular vets and with the surgeon who gave us our options for her care going forward. After much thought and discussion, we have decided to move forward with repairing her knees. The surgeon is not able to tell at this point, due to her contractures, if he can repair her knees without doing some repair work on her bones which are curved.

We have added photos of her legs and her xrays...click on the link under her photo to view.

She is scheduled for a CT Scan on May 31st to hopefully get a better idea of how much will need to be done to repair her knees.

There is a wide range in terms of cost for these surgeries. Each knee must be done separately and he said he would start with her right knee. For a repair of LP the cost for us for one knee is $2560 but if the bone is involved the cost would be $4560. So, the total for both legs would range between $5120 and $9120. The CT scan will be around $1000, so we are needing to raise $10,120 total for Ariel to have this surgery.

2/10/2019 - UPDATE regarding adoption. For an update on her treatments, read the posts below ...........The vet has told us that it will be months before Ariel will be of an adequate age and weight to spay and she will not be available to be adopted until after her spay and her physical therapy and any medical issues are addressed. However, we did want to post about the personality she is showing in hopes of finding her forever home in the future. Ariel has NO CLUE that she has a handicap. This thrills us to know that she has such a confident personality, but... sometimes that confident personality can be a downfall in pups this young. She exhibits a very strong will and can throw a tantrum. Yes, it is ADORABLE; but, take away the fact that she is only a few pounds and cute, and you have the makings of a major alpha on your hands. We do want a home where Ariel can be spoiled and treated like a princess, but this forever home will need King and a Queen that puts Ariel in line and lets her know who is boss. Delicate alpha owners will know how to handle this piranha in the making; but, it will also be necessary that there be at least two other dogs in the family to teach Ariel boundaries and keep her in line. Her being taken away from her mother so young has left her with only her foster siblings to learn from and these teachings will need to continue as she grows and ages. Are you and your other dogs up for the challenge? We are accepting applications now, but do understand that it will possibly 4 months or a bit longer before she is ready to be adopted. Thanks!

4/23/10 - Ariel improves weekly! She still goes to PT and will be seeing the surgeon on May 6th. We will then have a better idea of what the plans will be for her.

3/6/2019 - Ariel is continuing to do well in Physical Therapy ... she saw the dentist today and the right lower canine is still an issue. She will probably need to have her lower deciduous teeth extracted in the next month or two because that canine tooth is coming close to poking her palate. . She has another appt with the dentist on the 26th for a re-eval. Her weight is the same at 3.5 lbs.

2/9/2019 - Ariel continues to do well at Physical Therapy. If you click on the video link under her photo, you can see her progress!
She is now up to date on her puppy shots.
She has an overbite and a malocclusion, so a consult with a veterinary dentist is upcoming. She does not have any adult teeth yet, so we are hopeful that perhaps we can prevent her lower canines from coming in at the angle of her baby teeth, and causing issues with her palate.
Ariel is showing a very strong personality....she is known to scream at the top of her lungs to get her way. :) We think that this personality is why she is doing so well in PT ..she is a fighter!


1/28/2019 - Ariel is continuing to do very well in physical therapy where she goes 2x/week. Thank you to all who have sent prayers and donations for her!!

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.

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.

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. Youve 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 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. 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. 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 isnt 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, Daisys 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 couldnt 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 choice.

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 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!

Apply To Adopt Jax
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.

5/19/19 - My foster mom says she gave me the right nickname for the website. I go by Mickey but as stated below, she gave me a different name for the website to keep me separated from another Mickey and avoid confusion. She says I am so much like Jagger as you will read below!

When I first got here I was a bit confused. I spent the first year of my life as an only pup so I was a bit overwhelmed.. My mom had some health issues and had to surrender me and I was pretty upset ...I loved her a lot. Foster mom says my mom still checks on me by text message. <3 I have adjusted well and love playing with my foster siblings. I really would love to have a stay at home parent as I have a bit of separation anxiety....and I would love to have at least one other pup to play with. My foster mom also had promised my mom that she would make sure I went to a home where I had someone home with me.

Foster mom says my bark reminds her of Jagger...a tad bit loud but she appreciates that I am worrying about her welfare and bark at noises!

I for sure have moves like Jagger she said....I am always on the run! You can see in one of my photos that I LOVE to play with other pups. I don't care if they are male or female....I just want to play!

I am fairly good about the housebreaking thing but of course will need someone patient who will work with me.

So, if you think you have the right home for me, please complete my application!

5/1/19 - There is already one Mickey in TX, so my foster mom said I have moves like Jagger...hence the name :)

MICKEY NEEDS DONATIONS FOR A DENTAL AND PRE OP TESTING!!

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 - Whos the leader of the club thats 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 dont 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. Dont 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.

5/19/19 - I am still here waiting for you. I know you are out there....my perfect person! I am a good boy who loves to cuddle with my human. I have gotten used to some of the pups in my foster home and I will play but I need a pup who isn't an alpha....I feel that is my role! :)
I need a yard to run and play in and you MUST stay outside with me. I am very busy and love to try to see what is on the other side of the fence. It isn't that I want to run away. I am just a bit nosey! :)
Foster mom has to put this thing called a belly band on me. I don't like it but she doesn't want me peeing on things. I just can't seem to get the hang of this "housebreaking" thing.; but who knows, maybe in a home with less pups I would be better. If you love me lots, I promise I will do my best to please you.

7/11/2018 - - Allow me to introduce myself - my name is Houdini.... I mean Rex. I must have been a magician�s helper in a former life since I�m awesome at disappearing/escaping. This isn�t 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. I�m 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, I�m just an explorer. Foster mom wasn�t as easy to get past as my former owners. What�s 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 I�ve 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 I�m 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 doesn�t want them out of his sight. So, we think he�ll be a velcro dog unless this changes with time. We will update Rex�s 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

HANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ANY ASSISTANCE YOU CAN GIVE!

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.
