Cooper is a Yorkie/Maltese mix

1/7/22 - To quote Marilyn Monroe, I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.

Now that that’s out of the way, my name is Cooper. I came to Yorkie Haven because I can be a bit temperamental at times and my family of 9 years had a baby and they were afraid we would not get along. I can see their point. I don’t like hands coming at me too quickly and will let you know it. However, I don’t have many teeth left, so I can’t cause much harm. Also, foster mom says I have a “tell”. If you are in my space when I am not in the mood, I get this “I don’t trust – pause” about me that lets you know to just be on your way.

I absolutely love sleeping in the bed with my humans and love giving kisses. I get attached to women quicker than men, but I do love all people. I will follow you around non-stop. Even to the bathroom for whatever it is you are doing. I even raise up on the tub when foster mom is bathing and have to have kisses then. I would do best in a home with another dog or two that doesn’t really need my attention, or, the ideal is I’m the only dog getting all the attention. I know that sounds selfish, but my bio does start off letting you know I’m selfish. Lol

I love going for walks and rides. Great in a car and on a harness and leash and walking is a great outlet for me. I might be 9 years old, but I am very spry and healthy. I would definitely do better in a home without children because I don’t like the loud noises and chaos. Guess that’s where my age steps in. Foster mom says I am a quick learner. I learned to sit for treats in 1 day of practicing.

So, anyone out there looking for a sweet guy that is a tad quirky? I’m your baby. Let’s bring in this new 2022 together!

Kobe is a Shih-Tzu

3/7/22 - Kobe was given up because his mom had a baby and he is a little too Napoleon for that kind of activity around the house. He is a quirky little tyke. He is as cute as he is little, but comes with special demands. He is very attached to men, but also loves women. He would really love to be an only dog. He DOES NOT, I REPEAT, DOES NOT, want you messing with him while he eats. The instructions on the label read: Place the bowl on the floor (preferably with him not around you) and walk away. Wait until he is completely done (preferably many, many minutes after he has walked away from his bowl) to pick his bowl up. He absolutely loves to be held and petted on, but while you are holding/petting him, he does not want anyone else coming into the picture. For instance, if daddy is holding me mom, DON’T walk up and try to pet me, OR I WILL BITE YOU! And, unfortunately, I have pointy teeth that puncture. I also love to tear up paper if left around. Teehee.

I know, I know, I sound like a tyrant, but I am a very loving boy. I love rubbing my face on legs, clothes that are hanging down, covers, etc. I love having my belly rubbed, my face and ears rubbed and kissed and I love to play with fingers. I’m not real big on toys, but my foster mom keeps trying. Even though I am low to the ground, I am quite springy. I can use the steps to get in and out of the bed and on the sofa. I don’t like a chaotic house, so one without children is going to be best bet. Any loud noises send me into overdrive and that’s when my pointy teeth come out to play. I’m good with a bath and being blown dry. I tend to have itchy skin, so when I first got to my foster home, I received a Cytopoint Shot and seem to be doing great now. Just giving you a heads up in case I might need to get these every couple of months to keep my itchy skin calm. I also have a slight collapsing trachea. I only have episodes of hacking when I get excited when someone first comes home.
To sum up, I’m difficult, but not, sweet, but sassy, an angel, but a devil all wrapped into one. But I know one thing for sure, I’m too darn too cute to pass up. So, if you are interested, tell me and foster mom a little about yourself and your living arrangement and we will take you into consideration as my last parent(s).

Major Tom is a Yorkie/Schnauzer Mix

11/22/21 - Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! The name is Major Tom, but you can call me Major. Or, you can call me Tommy Boy. Or you can call me Baby. Just call me in a sweet voice, because I love that.
I was surrendered by my previous owner because I was too much to handle. My last home did not have enough energy outlets for me and I really need exercise and also needed more socialization. Not getting this resulted in me playing too rough snapping and biting at my mom. She did what was best and surrendered me to YHR. I explained to my foster mom that I didn’t mean it and she said that it’s just puppy antics that needed to be redirected.

I do have a very submissive and fearful personality. I’m afraid when meeting new people and will sometimes submissive tinkle. Other times I will try to overcompensate for my fear by barking and growling. Foster mom tells everyone to just sit down and let me get to know them and come to them on my terms. She told me that she understands my issues and we are going to slowly work on them. She’s cool. I’m timid around other dogs too. I’m just learning to play with them a little because there is a Shih-tzu in my foster home that is trying to show me the ropes. So having another dog in the home would be a plus so I can pickup ques from them and it helps me trust humans too. I just don’t need to be around any that are too rough because it scares me.

Once I trust you, I’m definitely my human’s dog and I will follow you everywhere and can even get protective of you. I f foster mom and I are in the bed and foster dad walks in, I will bark and growl at him until he comes over and talks sweet to me and pets me. Foster mom said that I cannot go to a home with children of any age or one that is too chaotic because I get overly stimulated easily. Exercise, i.e., walking, playing fetch or chase with my humans, etc. will help with this and help me to gain confidence.

I know I’m not doing the best at making myself sound like a gem to be adopted, but I am actually a great boy. I come when called, sleep right next to my human all night perfectly, and loves to give and receive love and affection. I’m learning to play with toys and it is the bomb! I’m pretty good in the potty department as long as you let me out enough and stay out with me If you think you will sneak off and go inside, forget it. I will run back in too and do my business inside. So, it’s up to you if you want to stay out with me, or clean up. Lol

I’m not a springy fellow. I’m actually just starting to walk up the steps/benches to the bed. But I still like to be picked up and put in the bed. I will come down the steps though. Foster mom says it is just adorable to see me raise up on the side of the bed and scratch to be picked up. I guess since I’m bigger, she just assumes I’d be able to jump up and down the steps with ease.

While I’m continuing to get love and attention here and learning discipline and how to trust, if you think I have the potential to be a part of your home, please apply. Remember, I will need a quiet home with parents that will exercise me regularly, no children, and another non-rowdy dog to learn from and play with.

Don’t let my shortcomings scare you off, I’m quite handsome and a great catch. Or so says foster mom and she wouldn’t lie to me. I'll be spending Thanksgiving with my foster family, but maybe by Christmas, I can have a family of my own. Major Tom signing off!




11/15/21 - We will post a bio as soon as we learn Major's personality, but have already learned that he IS NOT good with children of any age.

Gender: Male
Age: 14
Weight: 6.4
Location: LA
Adoption Fee: $100


For more information on Milo, contact foster parent at: bryorkiemom@yahoo.com

Apply To Adopt Milo
6/24/22 - sweet Milo crossed over to Rainbow Bridge last night with his foster mom holding him. His body was tired and he was ready. These babies are much stronger than we are. We are never ready for them to go, but have to be selfless and do what is best for them. We will miss you tremendously little man.

10/25/21 - Poor Milo started labored breathing early Sunday morning and was rushed to the ER. After x-rays and ultrasound, a mediastinal mass was seen. He also has a mild collapsing trachea which is, unfortunately, common in yorkies. He received oxygen and medicine and finally was able to be released to the comfort of his foster home. Milo will now take Prednisone, along with the Trilostane for his Cushings and Optimmune for his dry eyes. He will be kept comfortable and loved and spoiled for however long he gives us. He is just the sweetest, most loveable baby ever and simply adores to be held and loved on.



9/8/21 - So we brought Milo to the vet recently and after testing, it appears that he has Cushings. Since he is so small, the medicine needed to be compounded. He will take Trilostane liquid; 5 mg in the a.m. and 3 mg in the p.m. Other than that, he continues to receive Optimmune ointment for his dry eyes; 1 strip in each eye twice daily.

Milo is still the sweetest little man ever and still absolutely loves to be held.


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!

2/11/21 - Republican, Democrat, Independent. Doesn’t matter to me. As long as I get a family that will love me forever through thick and thin and never desert me. My name is Mitzi which in German and Latin means “star of the sea”. This could not be further from the truth since I AM NOT a fan of water. Grooming and bathing is not pleasant for me or the person bathing me.

I was surrendered to the shelter by my owner because she had some medical issues. As you can imagine, I was terrified at the shelter. Thank goodness Yorkie Haven was called and came and scooped me up. They could not believe my age when they first met me because I’ve got some spunk to me. I’m a fast walker and busy - when I’m not napping.

I co-exist fine with the other pups in my foster home, but do not play with other dogs or toys. Foster mom keeps trying to get me to sleep in the bed with her and the others, but I’m content in one of the dog beds.

I was brought to the vet when I first arrived and they said that my teeth needed to be cleaned. Turns out they lied. I had 19 teeth left and they all needed to come out. So, now I eat soft food with a little warm water and a few hard pieces of kibble for kicks and giggles. Apparently at my previous home I was given table scraps, because I am quite the beggar. They also found out that I have dry eye, so I am now on optimmune drops twice daily in both eyes. NOT a fan of that. Anything activity around my face makes me fussy, but I guess I have to get used to it unless I want my eyes to get worse.

I love all people but will hunker when someone goes to pick me up. This could be because my sight and hearing are a little compromised. I run outside with the rest of the crew to do my potty business, but foster mom has caught me using the pee pads she has down. This made her very happy. Some people are so easy to please. I’m an explorer. When we are outside, I love going around and sniffing and checking out everything. Foster mom thinks if I could find a way out, I would take advantage of it. I have that terrier instinct.

I would love to say that I am a snuggle bunny, but I’m not a huge fan of being held for long periods and don’t give doggy kisses. Loud noises, i.e., vacuum cleaner, etc. scare me a little. Don’t know about any fireworks or bad weather yet, but will update you when it happens.

So that about sums me up for now. Back to you - I don’t care what party you are or who you voted for, dog ownership just requires humanity and love. So if you aren’t scared of a senior showing you up in the energy department at times, take a chance on me.

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!!!

***MUST BE AN ONLY DOG**

6/14/22 - Penny for your thoughts! While you think on that, I’ll give you my story….

I came Yorkie Haven in quite the mess. My eyes were so dry and infected that it hurt and was difficult for me to blink. I resembled a Chinese Crested as I was missing quite a bit of hair from allergies and my body and ears were very yeasty. When I got to my foster mom’s house, we jumped right in on the first vet visit with medicine for my ears, eyes, and multiple injections for my skin and itching. We went home with various prescriptions and a medicated shampoo with instructions for foster mom to bathe me twice a week.

Fast forward to today, and I am feeling, seeing, and blinking much better. I do have dry eye, so will need genteal gel put in my eyes a couple times a day.

The first and probably main thing to know about me is that I need to be the only dog. I DO NOT like other dogs at all, no matter the gender or size. I go from zero to Cujo in .05 second when I even see another dog. Humans, that’s a different story. I LOVE ALL HUMANS. I like to play with toys, but would rather play with you. I am very spry for my age, so don’t let my number scare you.

When foster mom has to go out, I have free reign and am pretty good, but do make mistakes. I do not use potty pads, but definitely do my business when brought outside and need to be brought out often and have guidance since this is apparently new to me. I do well on a harness and leash, but would love a fenced yard to run and play in. I am a very hearty eater and fine with baths.

I am loyal beyond belief, and as far as companionship, you will never be alone again. Seriously, I even go to the bathroom with you and if you think about sitting down, you are definitely putting me in your lap. Oh, I like to kiss too. I’ve been told that I’m a good kisser, but you can judge for yourself. I would like to sleep with my humans, but am also fine if I fall asleep in my bed on the floor.

Other than the hating other dogs and needing to be the only furry baby in the house, I am ideal. If a night of snack, snuggling and sitcoms is your thing, we may just be soulmates.

5/23/22 – Webster is an adorable young and active pup. During his first year of life he did not have a lot of socialization with other pups and people, but is learning how to trust and understand everyone in his foster home. He has started to want to play with the other pups in his foster home; but unfortunately, they are older and not interested in playing with a young pup so they bark at him and he barks back at them. He has started getting up on furniture and sleeps in bed with his foster parents, although he can be up and down during the night sometimes and uses the doggy stairs with ease. He is not house trained and needs some work in that area. He will sometimes potty outside, but will do both jobs in the house too. He does not do well riding in the car either. On someone’s lap he is all over the place and he does NOT like crates. His foster parents are going to try a doggy car seat and see if that works any better. Webster’s previous parents told us that when he was young he went to play with the crate door and it came back and hit him and ever since he has hated crate doors. In his previous home he would go in a crate that did not have a door on it. His foster home had to remove the metal crates with attached doors because he would not leave them alone and was pulling out and chewing up blankets inside of them. He will literally bite the crate door and pull on it. He will need work to understand they are not bad and trust a crate door again. Webster is still all puppy and will need a family with patience and understanding to help Webster learn and grow. Webster loves to be told he is a good boy and will lay and sleep on your lap. He gives kisses and is a great eater. Webster just needs time, patience, and understand to learn to trust and understand his surroundings and he will make a great companion for anyone. He would probably do great with another young pup his size that loves to play and run around now that he is wanting to do that with other pups in his foster home.

12/3/2021 - Cash is just as described in his original post other than the fact he does have some changes in his medical condition.
Cash has PLN (protein losing nephropathy) and is taking Enalapril. He is doing well with his albumin pretty steady. He also has a history of some GI issues. We suspect he could have PLE as well but that is not presently diagnosed. He is on prescription food: Royal Canin Gastro Intestinal low fat diet. He also is on Proin for nighttime incontinence.
Yes, he does have a lot of issues, but he is a charming pup who does not appear ill at all. He just needs his meds to be well.

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.

August 8, 2021 - Harley has been on Lomotil and showing some improvement in the coughing.

July 1, 2021 - Harley is feeling better and does not require further hospitalization for pancreatitis. We will be re evaluating his meds for collapsed trachea as this week was stressful for him.

Due to Harley stressing easily and causing increased coughing from the collapsed trachea, we have decided to look for a home that is close to his foster home. He is being fostered in Kemah, TX. We want to be able to make it a slower adoption with Harley getting to know a new family before making a move.



June 29, 2021 - It is not a good month for Harley. He had an appointment scheduled for tomorrow for med review for the collapsed trachea; but woke up ill this morning. He was diagnosed with pancreatitis and admitted for IV fluids. Hopefully he will be feeling better in a couple of days.
Please keep our little buddy in your prayers.

June 11, 2021 - Harley was seen at the vet today and diagnosed with a collapsed trachea. He had started coughing recently when barking and/or playing. He has been started on medications for 2 weeks and then will be re-evaluated.

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.

5/13/2022 - Kimmie had her follow up CT Scan at the dentist today and we are happy to report that her fractures are healing well. She sends kisses to everyone who donated towards her care.

4/3/2022 - Ok, I’ll just start off by letting you know that I realize that I am not the most adoptable pup in the world. I really have a fear of humans right now. Some humans have really worked me over in my lifetime and it’s just not that easy letting my guard down.

I don’t exactly remember when, but I was kicked out into this cruel world to fend for myself. I obviously wasn’t doing that great of a job since one of those huge things with four wheels ran me down. It was all a blur of pain and being moved around at that time.

I finally ended up in a nice foster home with Yorkie Haven Rescue and my foster mom is helping me heal and learn to trust humans again. She took me to a special dentist who said I had a lot of fractures in my jaw and face but that I would heal in time. The doctor told my foster mom I am a lucky girl because my teeth are still ok and my jaw had not moved, so I didn't need surgery or a splint. The first doctor that had seen me had put one on and I hated it. My foster mom is giving me soft food and she seems real nice. I am starting to let her pet me. I heard her tell people that she is giving me time to figure out that people aren’t wanting to hurt me. I hope she is right and my awful days are behind me, but to be totally honest, I’m afraid of people at this point. Now dogs, I love other dogs. Love to sleep by them, love to play with them, love to always be near them. My foster mom has other dogs and they are very kind to me; so, having another friendly dog in my future home will only help me to trust you more.

Quick movements frighten me. Also, while I will let my foster mom pet me now, most times it has to be on my terms. If she reaches for me I tuck my tail and run. I like her, I just am so afraid of being hurt again.
-----
So now you’re probably thinking, “Why adopt this dog, she’s hopeless”. Well, Kimmie is not hopeless and this is your chance to really “adopt” and “rescue” a poor lost soul who will in time come around.

If you are able to provide this sweetheart with the patience and space she needs to learn that life from here on out will be good for her, Kimmie will, in time, reward you tenfold with her loyalty. She’s not going to greet you at the door right off with a big lick, she doesn’t want to cuddle up next to you on the sofa and watch a movie, but this baby is one that really deserves another chance at a life that she has missed out on at the hands of inhumane people.

4/2/2022 - Kimmie is doing well physically. She does not seem to have any issues with the multiple fractures of her jaw and face. She is eating well and has put on some much needed weight. She will be returning to the specialist in May for a follow up CT scan of her mouth.

She still has a long way to go. She is extremely timid but is starting to learn that the hands that feed her are not going to harm her. We have no idea how long she was a stray but she acts as if it was a very long time. She is doing very well with the other pups in her foster home.

I have serious medical issues, Please Donate!
Name: Sushi
Gender: Female
Age: 2
Weight: 4
Location: TX
Adoption Fee: $500


For more information on Sushi, contact foster parent at: yorkietude@yahoo.com

Apply To Adopt Sushi
1/6/2022 - Sushi is a happy pup and loves to play with her foster siblings. Her future home should have at least one other small pup that loves to play!
She is coming along in the housebreaking department, but does have some accidents.
She loves to cuddle at night with her human.
She was seen by the neurologist in November and her meds are the same. Sushi's medical/neurological conditions are not "curable" but are "treatable". She should be fine as long as her meds are continued. She does have occasional yelping episodes which may be related to fluid on her brain, or the fact she is a bit of a drama queen. Difficult to determine but thankfully they are short lived.
She remains on:
Keppra every 8 hours
Gabapentin every 8 hours
Omeprazole every 12 hours.
She will need a follow up MRI in September 2022 and anyone interested in adopting Sushi should be able to provide neurology follow up, tests and meds as needed.


11/16/2021 - Sushi is doing pretty well. She has some occasional yelping due to what we assume is pain from fluid build up. She has not had further seizures. She will be seeing the neurologist this week for a follow up.
She is on the following meds daily:
Keppra every 8 hours
Gapapentin every 8 hours
Omeprazole every 12 hours

9/20/2021 - Sushi had the brain MRI today. It revealed that she has caudal occipital malformation (COMS) and associated congenital issues. These structural changes may lead to seizures and other neurological deficits. We are starting Sushi on an oral antacid which has been shown to decrease cerebrospinal fluid production and may alleviate clinical signs. She also will continue her anti epileptic medication. Additionally, she will be on Gabapentin as needed for pain. Results of the spinal tap are pending.
Thank you to everyone for your kind words and for your donations that made it possible for us to find out what was going on with Sushi so that we can help her.

9/20/2021 - Due to increasing seizures Sushi has been seen by the neurologist and is having a MRI and other tests done this today. Will update as we know more.

Sept 1, 2021 - UPDATE: Sushi most likely does not have a liver shunt based on the CT scan; but, we are to repeat bile acids in 4 - 6 months. She likely has microvascular dysplasia.

She has had some breakthrough seizures, so a neurological consult is scheduled for October 6th since it is unlikely the liver issue is what is causing these seizures.

THANK YOU to everyone who has donated and prayed for Sushi. We could not do what we do for these pups without all of you. <3

August 30, 2021 - Sushi is having a CT Scan & Angiography today to rule out a liver shunt.

8/23/21 - Sushi came to us with a history of seizures which are presently controlled with medications.

Her bile acids are elevated and her xray revealed a small sized liver. She was referred by our vet to Internal Med Specialists and was seen there today. They sent a Protein C sample out today. Further treatment will be determined after the test results are back.

Her vet bills as of today are $990.

Donations for Sushi are appreciated.
