==================

Sweet little Kerrington (aka Kerri) is a sweet little “Velcro” dog that really wants to be with you – always! 😊 She likes other dogs but is OK to be the only spoiled one in the household. Although she’s not been around kitties, we suspect, given her sweet and loving nature, she’d be OK w/them.

Like most Yorkies, she can be a little stubborn but not unreasonable. With a previous Yorkie owner who knows the breed, she will become less stubborn with your patience, love, and time. She loves car rides and her walks – gets so excited when she sees her leash.

As a young dog at ~ 2 years old, she is somewhat active but does enjoy her lap time w/her human(s). She enjoys looking out the window as she is taking it all in.

Little Kerri does NOT like crates and may do best in a small, confined area w/a gate. She is not 100% housebroken but uses pads. Someone home to continue the house training would be optimal.

Ideally, a home without children is best as little children aren’t good w/little dogs due to their wanting to “play” w/the little ones, which can be a bit rough for the little canine.

Pros and cons of Yorkshire Terriers

The Good

· Fine-boned, elegant, easy to carry, doesn't take up much space

· Sheds very lightly (one of the best breeds for allergy sufferers)

· Lively and inquisitive, moves swiftly with light-footed grace

· Doesn't need a lot of exercise

· A keen watchdog – won't fail to announce strangers

· Peaceful with other pets

The Bad

· Physically fragile, requiring a great deal of supervision and monitoring

· Notorious housebreaking difficulties

· Prone to barking

· Regular brushing and combing, or regularly trimming/clipping the coat short

· Suspiciousness, shrillness, and nastiness when babied or spoiled or not socialized enough or made to behave

The two main behavior problems in Yorkies:

· Housebreaking. The Yorkshire Terrier is one of the Top 5 List of Hardest Breeds to Housebreak, according to a dog behaviorist. If you live in a cold or rainy climate, it's worse, because Yorkies hate both the cold and the rain.

A COVERED potty area is strongly recommended or teach him/her to use an indoor litter box.

· Barking. With their keen senses, Yorkies make excellent watchdogs. However, this can make them too quick to sound the alarm at every new sight and sound. You have to be equally quick to stop them before excessive barking becomes an established habit.

10/20/21 - ADOPTION PENDING!

9/9/21 - Once upon a time there was a little baby yorkie born on June 14, 2020. This baby was purchased from a breeder by a lady in August of 2020 and named Jasper. Jasper was your typical puppy, trying to learn, making mistakes, chewing things he should not and being mouthy with those sharp puppy teeth. Seems without another fur-sibling to play with, Jasper became a little too much for his owner, who was about to have back surgery, so he was surrendered to an adoption agency on July 27, 2021. The agency adopted Jasper out on August 3, 2021 to an older couple with no other dogs which resulted in him being returned just 7 days later on August 10, 2021 for being too nippy and bossy with the couple. Once again, Jasper was adopted out on August 12, 2021 to yet another home with no other dogs and was returned a short 5 days later on August 17, 2021 for being too active, nippy and aggressive.

At this time, Yorkie Haven was called and of course we stepped up. Jasper is your typical yorkie that had no energy outlet, no exercise, no other dogs to play with, no stability, no direction and no discipline in his life from day 1. Our specialty!

His foster mom picked him up and over the next few days, learned that Jasper is like a Peleton instructor after three espressos. Nothing new for a 1 year old yorkie with pent-up energy and frustration who learned to get and demand what he wants by barking, lunging and nipping ankles/calves. Jasper has separation anxiety, which doesn’t surprise us in the least. Anyone bounced around to as many locations as poor Jasper has been, SHOULD have separation anxiety.

Here is the way we see this going down. Jasper is getting some much needed attention, stability, routine, exercise and correction to help him become the puppy he should have been from the beginning. But, after all the negative direction in his life, it will take time and an experienced dog owner to change his ways. With that being said, he will need to be adopted to an owner that 1) Has another dog that wants to play; 2) Has an owner to take him for walks; 3) Has a fenced in yard; 4) Does not live in a condo or apartment; 5) Doesn’t work long hours, or has someone who is home; and 6) Is gentle, but firm in being the alpha role over this gorilla in a yorkie body.

Jasper will run off with just about anything you drop or lay down as he thinks everything is a game. He knows the sit command and is food motivated which is a plus in the training department. He loves squeaky toys and playing fetch and tug-o-war. He wants you in his sight at all times and follows his foster mom everywhere. This may lessen as he becomes more confident that he isn’t going to be given up every week. He is a definite darter if an exterior door is open. He eats and sleeps like a champ. Being an active baby, he likes attention and sitting in your lap, but not for long. In time, he will chill out.

His foster mom is retired and home most of the time, which is good for him. When she leaves for small periods, she puts him in a smaller pet taxi which seems to help him calm more. She first tried a baby gate on the bathroom door. He quickly climbed over that. Next she tried a bigger crate, which he attacked and bounced around in. Putting him in a room with a closed door would likely result in woodwork and paint damage upon your return. When she exits, he barks for a bit and then calms down. She is never gone too long. This is a work in progress as Jasper's past brings him fear of abandonment.

Foster mom is working on his barking/biting/lunging with a NO said in a firm, alpha voice and a water spray bottle set on stream. He has already learned about the spray bottle and will usually stop unwanted behavior when she picks it up.

This baby boy is a diamond in the ruff and is going to make the best companion for the right owner. He is just the SWEETEST baby who is basically needing to be remolded which takes time and love—something every dog owner should understand and have.

10/7/21 - Louie’s foster mom brought him to the vet recently because she noticed that he was having labored breathing and hacking frequently. X-rays were taken and it seems that Louie does have a collapsing trachea and they also found a huge mass on his heart/lung area.

Louie currently takes Metacam for his arthritis/spondylosis. The plan now is to take him off the Metacam so they can start him on prednisone in addition to Hydrocodone for his coughing and Terbutaline for the collapsed trachea.


3/12/21 - 

I have been with my foster mom for almost 2 years now.  I know that I have some medical issues and am up in age, but I just want everyone out there to know that I am a catch, if you cannot tell from my photos.

Here’s a little recap on me:

-                 I am 14 years young (I don’t look or act my age).  I have approximately 7 teeth left, but still eat hard food with a little dollop of soft food mixed with warm water.

-                 I’m on thyroid medication because of a low thyroid – Thyroxine ½ pill twice daily (which I take in a pill pocket like a champ).

    I have arthritis and spondylitis in my left front leg and take Metacam that this once daily – this helps me tremendously, but there are times where I will still hold up my front left leg if you hold me too long or I’ve used it too much.

-                 I have a condition called Paraphimosis – this is where my private part doesn’t always retract back into the sheath.  So basically my lipstick sometimes is out of the tube a little.  This is a real condition and foster mom just checks me a couple times a day and if my lipstick is poking out, it’s easy just to put a tiny bit of Vaseline on your fingers and pull the sheath back over to where I’m hidden again.  I know that sounds bad, and I’m so embarrassed, but it is what it is, and helping me with this will be a necessity if you want me to join you.

I can still hear pretty well, but I have selective hearing.

Now, if all of the above did not scare you off and you are still reading, I am a great companion that isn’t too clingy, but still likes attention.  I good about doing my business outside if brought out enough.  Remember, I have a small bladder and am 14 years old.  I will also use pee pads inside, but I still might have a mistake here and there.  I sleep in the bed with you and am a great bed partner.  I don’t take up too much space and do not care if you snore.  I would like a fenced in yard as I do like to sunbathe when the weather is nice and like a little privacy when doing my business.  I get along with other dogs fine, but really do not engage in play.  So it’s ok if you have other pups or a cat, just as long as they don’t expect me to play with them.  Now here is the one thing that I think is a big deal, I am a man’s dog.  Yep, I would absolutely love to have a daddy over a mommy.  A mom is fine and if you are the perfect home, I can make do.  But I’m just saying, I light up more when there is a man around.  Yep, I would absolutely love to have a daddy over a mommy.  A mom is fine and if you are the perfect home, I can make do.  But I’m just saying, I light up more when there is a man around.  So all you guys out there who think it’s macho to own and love a little dog, give me a shout.



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

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

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

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

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

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!!!

7/16/2021 - Bubbles has been doing great with no issues since her relapse in 2019. She remains on her prescription food, prednisone, and chlorambucil. She is still her feisty self and remains under the care of her specialist a couple times a year.

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

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

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


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


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


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

12/24/2013 - My story is the story of �The Princess to The Pauper�

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

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

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

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

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

Sending you tail wags and kisses!
Bubbles

10-21-2021 - ADOPTION PENDING!!


10/8/2021 – A month ago Fiona had six adult teeth and one baby tooth removed at the specialist. The adult teeth were crowding the canine teeth and forcing them in towards the middle of the bottom jaw. This could cause issues and damage to the roof of her mouth if they were to continue to move inward. She just had her recheck and currently the bottom canines are hitting the top canines and not the roof of her mouth. This is great and means she currently will not need any additional dental work, but they would like her to have a recheck in 6 months to make sure they are still not impacting the roof of her mouth. She is now officially ready for her forever home!! She will just need her bile acids checked in just under a year and her teeth checked by a specialist in 6 months just to make sure everything is still ok. Fiona is still a VERY active young lady that LOVES to play with toys and likes to try and play with her foster sister. She has a lot of energy and would love a big fenced yard to run and play in.

8/24/21 - Well Fiona just cannot catch a break. We took her for her dental and after the vet started looking at her teeth to pull the baby teeth she could see that her adult teeth are quite messed up, such as she has more teeth on one side of her mouth than the other. With that in mind, just pulling her baby teeth would not help with the other issues. The vet recommended we see a dental specialist and we have a consultation scheduled for 9/2. We thought she would be ready for her new forever home, but unfortunately we have to get this all figured out first. We will update and let everyone know after we talk to the specialist and see how we need to proceed.



7/16/2021 - Fiona had surgery on July 1st to be spayed, biopsy the liver, check the ameroid, and perform a vascular study. After going in they found that the ameroid used to close off the shunt had not completely closed it off, which is likely why her bile acids continued to go up. The surgeon ligated it and tied it off and confirmed there was no more leaking. We are still waiting on the liver biopsy results from Cornell. We will be rechecking her bile acids at the end of the month to see if they are now in the more normal range for a liver shunt pup. Based on the results we will determine how to proceed with diet and medications. After she is cleared from the liver shunt issues, she will need a dental to remove baby teeth. After all of that she will finally be ready for her new family. She is still playful as ever with lots of energy.

6/24/21 – Fiona looks and acts like she is doing great, but unfortunately her bile acids continue to be elevated and have been higher each time they are checked. The CT Scan did not show any acquired shunts, so the next steps is to do additional checks to see if we can figure out why they are continuing to go up. She is scheduled for surgery on July 1st and at that time they will spay her, take a biopsy of the liver to see if it has changed now that the shunt has been fixed, check to make sure that the device put in has completely closed off now, and lastly perform a vascular study to ensure there are not other issues. Hopefully one of those will give us a better idea of why they are remaining elevated. Luckily she does not act sick at all and is a wild and happy puppy. She has lots of energy and wants to play, play and play some more.


5/13/21 - It has been a while since our last update, but we have been waiting on some test results before updating everyone. Unfortunately the news for Fiona is not good. Back in February her bile acids were slightly elevated so we wanted to give the device a little more time in case it had not closed enough, so in April they were redone. The prepandial number was 130 and postprandial was 154. We wanted to make sure this was accurate and redid the bile acids on 5/10 and the postprandial is now 285. A normal dog would have the prepandial between 0 and 14.9 and postprandial between 0 and 29.9, so you can see 285 is very high. This is leading us to believe that Fiona is one of the 3% to 7% of dogs that have their bodies produce additional shunts to make up for the one that has been closed.

Fiona is scheduled for a CT scan on Monday so they can check and see what is going on. Once this is performed we will determine next steps for Fiona. We do know she will likely need to stay on medicated food and her current medications for the rest of her life. Luckily at this time you would not even know her levels are this high. She is a VERY playful and happy little pup. We say she is making up for lost time from when she was sick as a young pup. She loves everyone and wants to play with every dog she comes in contact with.


2/25/2021 - Today the surgeon called with the results of Fiona’s follow up visit.  Unfortunately it was not the news we were hoping for.  Her bile acid test showed after eating her level is still too high.  There are a couple reasons this could be happening.  We have decided to recheck again in two months and keep everything as is during that time.  So she will remain on prescription food and current medications for now.  If in two months it is still too high, then we will determine next steps to see if we can find out what is causing the elevated levels.  This means Fiona will not be ready for her new home for another couple months.

2/15/21 - Fiona has been doing great since having surgery. She is like a new puppy!! She has been driving her foster sister crazy wanting to play ALL the time and therefore could use another pup her size to play with. She is 7 months old, weighs 5 pounds and is learning to ask to go outside to potty. Her follow up with full workup is at the end of the month. Once we get the all clear from her specialist we will schedule her for her spay and to remove any baby teeth and then she will be ready for her new home. She is a very happy loving little girl.


11/25/2020 - FIONA SAYS THANK YOU FOR HELPING HER!!!
Fiona had her surgery on Monday and was discharged from the hospital today. She is doing very well but not happy with her restrictions! :) She is feeling great and wants to run, but she needs to rest for now. We are, of course happy that she is doing so well!
Thank you so much for all of your donations, well wishes and prayers.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

11/23/2020 - Fiona's surgery today went well. Please keep her in your thoughts for a speedy recovery.

11/16/2020 - Fiona is a precious 4 month old puppy who was surrendered to Yorkie Haven Rescue on 11/5/2020 with symptoms of a possible liver shunt.

She spent 24 hours in the hospital and was discharged on 11/6/2020 with medications and instructions to be seen by Internal Med on 11/9/2020.

She woke up Monday, 11/9/2020 acting extremely neurological, including stumbling and falling over, head pressing, walking along walls, and she could not see or hear. She was admitted to the hospital that morning. After being stabilized, a CT Scan was done and, as suspected, she does have a portosystemic shunt (liver shunt) which is operable.
She was discharged from the hospital on 11/10/2020 and must be stabilized on medications for two weeks prior to surgery which is scheduled for 11/23/2020.

So far, her vet bills have totaled $2238.79 and estimate for surgical repair is $3000 - $4500. She does already have $1775 towards our goal of $6,000! That was through Facebook and our website donations.

We realize it is a lot to ask … 2020 has been a rough year for everyone and SO many of you have been so generous. We simply could not say no to Fiona and pray we will be able to raise the much needed funds for her surgery.

Please remember it is not the amount. We are thankful for any and all donations. Dollars add up!

11/6/2020 - Fiona came to us with symptoms of a possible liver shunt. She was head pressing, falling down and acting like she could not see or hear. She spent the last 24 hours in Emergency and her bile acid test did come back very elevated indicating a liver shunt. She has been discharged this evening with RX food and antibiotics, Lactulose and anti seizure meds. . She will be seen by IMED on Monday for further tests and referral for surgery.

We are setting a fundraising goal of $5000 which may change a bit as we go along . Her bill overnight was $1,300 so we do think the end bill will be more than the goal we have set.
Prayers and donations appreciated.

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.

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.

VERY SPECIAL & SWEET SENIOR BOY!

4/9/2021 - Tiny was having diarrhea at night and after tests were done his vet put him on hydrolyzed dog foid and a low dose if prednisone which has proven to be the perfect fix!
Because he had such a severe reaction to anesthesia we have decided not to have a dental done. He is eating well and not having any issues. He us simply too high risk for anesthesia.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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


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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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