Theo

                   

Hi, We adopted Theo little over a month ago from his foster mom, Kerri, at Yorkies placement service. We had been reading about him and following up on his progress through Pet Finders since the beginning of the year when he was saved by Yorkies Inc. after he was hit by a car. We fell in love with him instantly when we saw his pictures and what he had endured. When he came to meet us with his foster mom, Kerri, it was love at first sight and I knew from that day that I wanted him to be part of our family. Although he is afraid of meeting new people and noises he is starting to learn to overcome these things and that we are always there for him and love him dearly. He walks twice a day, enjoys playing and riding in the car.  When he is not doing these he enjoys snuggling up with us on the couch. Since my husband is home all day with him he calls him his buddy! We are so thankful that we had the opportunity to adopt him and that he will be able to live a long happy life with us!

Update:9/24/17:Hi Kerri, He is doing much better with eating! I read the flyer that you gave me on what add ins I can use. He usually cleans his bowl.  He is the highlight of our day! He loves to walk, play and cuddle with both of us! He also loves to ride in the car! Just trying to work on his paws
getting wiped when wet. He is usually patience with brushing him also. I will bring him by the groomers and see when she wants to trim him. She had
said to hold off for awhile until he gets used to everything. She also does dog training so we are going to have some lessons. Has he been to a
groomer and if so ,did he have any fear problems? PS Sent some new photos but don't worry the one in the back yard is my neighbors fenced in yard playing. I would never let him loose.

Dancer now Haley



Hi Kerrianne, I wanted to give you an update and couple of photos for Happy Tails! Haley, formerly Dancer, is just such a precious girl!
She sleeps in bed next to me and Levi every night. She loves exploring the yard especially checking out the bunnies !! She's doing great with the house training. The  only accidents have been in front of the door so she knows where she's supposed to be heading. She and Levi love cuddling up on the couch together just like old friends. I'm taking her for her suture removal in a few days and her incision looks great. She's been pretty good at leaving it alone. We couldn't be happier!!!Here are a couple of photos. One of Haley & Levi hanging out on the sand area of the yard being dirty dogs!!

Again thanks so much for everything!!! Sara Turner

Chris w/Peyton

Hi Kerri & Laura, We are so happy to have found "our little girl." Payton mapped our home within 2 days. She loves her time outside in our yard and family cuddle time on the couch. Her brothers: Tommy and Jasper weren't so sure when we first brought her home, especially Tommy due to having to share mommy's lap, but now Tommy falls asleep with her on mommy's lap with one paw resting over her. The first few days Payton wasn't so sure about her biggest brother, Jasper, as he is 80% blind and mostly deaf, due to his senior citizen status, surprising her unintentionally when walking by or near her. Payton and Jasper love exploring our yard together. Now, if Jasper is nearby she checks her location to him using her nose. Even if she doesn't need to go to the bathroom, she begs to go outside and lay in the sun. She lets the boys know when someone is at the door and her humans know when treats are taking too long. She and Tommy compete to see who can give their humans the most kisses before bedtime. She has brought so much happiness to our home. Thank you Yorkies Inc. for saving and caring for our little girl. Ashling & Chris

 

Mason & Tia


Ron w/Tia & Margo w/Mason
 

Well good morning.  I was just coming up to the computer to jot you a quick note letting you know that all is well here.  Believe they have settled in very nicely, we have a routine now, and boy do they know what is coming next!  :)  First thing we do in the morning (around 5 am) is go outside to potty, both are doing exceptionally well in that area, next is medications, and then breakfast.  After they have eaten, then curl up in my lap as I’m eating, and we snuggle for an hour or so, then I’m off doing my thing, Ron is up and they are with him until he get’s busy, then they have the run of the whole kitchen.  We have gotten additional gates so we can block off the big kitchen and they have free reign to move freely about.  I still keep their little pen up for them incase they want to go inside for “quiet” time, and I put them in there for night time as that is what they are use to and seem more comfortable in the smaller space.  They are eating well, drinking well, playing and acting like they have been here for years!  Whenever Ron and/or I are sitting, they are in our laps. 
Both are going to be groomed on Monday.  I took them both for a meet and great with Sam my groomer, and she was very comfortable with Mason’s issues, in fact she does a little Pomeranian who can’t stand at all, and she and another groomer do her together, which is what she is going to do with Mason.  I feel very comfortable leaving them with her, as I have known her and used her services for years.  On the 23rd we visit the new vet, anxious to see what she things and says. 
I have noticed that when Tia pee pees she only goes a small amount, is this normal for her, or should I have the vet do another analysis, she is drinking well. Other than this, we have no issues, they love Andrew, and seem to love being here, and goodness knows, we love having them.  Thank you for allowing us to take them as I know it was a very difficult decision for you and John to let them go.  We will send some new pictures soon.
 Have a wonderful weekend, and hugs to you both.
Margo & Ron
 

Theodore


Pam w/Theodore & Snickers

Hi Kerri, Theo continues to do well and we are happy with his progress. Guess we all just needed some time to settle down and also to do more grieving for Shyanne. Theo has fit in so well to our household and likes to do all the things that we like. He is a good dog and really is well behaved. You were so right that he is a people dog and he especially loves other dogs as well. We were so lucky to get such a great dog and we love him so much already. Thanks again Yorkies Inc. for all you did for us all. Theo is a keeper for sure!! Our best to everyone and the pups, Pam and Brian

 

Prince


Prince w/Joe & Lucy
 

Daisy Mae now Nora


 

We are so delighted to welcome Nora to the family! She fit in immediately. After losing our beloved Finn in 2016 (Maltese just shy of 10 years old) we all felt a huge void. Our 9 year old Bichon-Maltese mix loves playing & our 11 year old Yorkie Jackson loves napping. Nora loves doing both things with both! We have never had a female so trying to get used to not always saying, "ok boys!" Nora's sweet personality is so great! She's happy to see everyone and is getting spoiled rotten! Needs work with potty training, but with the nice weather approaching & crate training she will catch on soon enough. 
Thank you Yorkies Inc again (our 3rd adoption) 
Love, Kim

Eddy & Rio



Hi I am Eddy and this is my foster brother Rio, we just got adopted to a very nice mom and dad. We have a nice yard to play in with lots of toys. We go for walks and car rides, we also keep mom and dad warm in a nice big bed. Rio likes to steal shoes and moms glasses and I kind of like to torment my brother but mom and dad love us just the same.  Daddy is teaching Us how to sit for a snack, I think we're going to be very happy here. I hope all the other rescue dogs gets a nice home too. And Rio and I would like to thank Kerri, our foster mom for taking care of us until we found our forever home. Hugs and kisses❤️
 

Tyson



Thank you Yorkies Inc, for our new Furry Baby Tyson.  We love him so much.  Tyson is a love bug, and we can't help spoiling him.  
Susan



 

Reddy now Rianna


Keith w/Rianna(Reddy) & Lisa w/Alma

I don't know if you can see these very clearly but our new baby has been on her bed next to the fireplace for well over an hour. She fits right in. Has already been trying to jump on the chairs and the couch to get up to be with Alma and she started spinning around so I thought maybe that meant she wanted to eat and she did. She ate every bit . She knows where the water bowl is. She did do PeePee on the rug but that's OK we're working on that. She lays next to Alma. So I think this is a wonderful match. Thank you so much. I will be in touch. I am so happy I just wanted to send you this now.
Lisa

                                           
3/23:We are calling her Rianna and she already knows her name. I read about how to help a pet recognize a new name. I love when she lifts her head high when she wants to be pet there. I love her and I am thrilled that Alma loves her too and Keith of course. Alma loving her so much was the topping on the cake! Lisa
3/25:
Is it Official??!! Am I officially Lisa & Keith's baby and Alma's Little sissy now? Love, Rianna

                                                              
Yes! Yeah! Woot hoot! Ruff Ruff! I know it's official because I heard Rianna bark today and a little growl while having fun playing with Alma and Keith, the first time that we ever heard her make so much fun sounds - just a little bark or two and some fun growly sounds. Thank you so much I will still periodically send you pictures.
Love Lisa


Libby now Zoe

 



Willow

She was terrific on the flight. She is starting to really feel at home. Been using the potty pad and loves to sleep with her Blankey. She's just lurking around the house. Sir peanut is still a little flipped out but they're starting to get along quickly. Thank you so much for allowing us to adopt Willow.
Rich Rosenstein


Willow/w Rich & Jody w/ Sir (also adopted from Yorkies Inc.)

Update 4/18:
Dear Cathie, Here is a picture of Richard holding our new daughter Willow, and me holding Sir Peanut. Willow I believe is the 4th Happy Tail in our love story with Yorkie's Inc. This note is sooo long overdue. Willow is just one little lump of love. We are so very happy to have her. My Vet, who adores Yorkies, said she is about the most perfect one he's ever seen... no knee problems, no health problems, as sweet as can be. What else could you ask for.
When Rich first brought Willow home, she was very scared. We didn't know why. She resisted touch and I was concerned that someone or another dog had mistreated her in the past. Initially, Sir Peanut was none too happy to see her either, and for the first two nights, Sir Peanut, another Yorkies Inc. alum, literally slept on top of me cuddled up tight shaking and Willow attached herself to me or to Richard, going back and forth during the night for comfort. She peed our bed, but it happened only the once. Willow soon found her niche in our family and became increasingly comfortable on the bed that she shares with us and the space that she shares with Sir, who sleeps on bean bag pillows and baby blankets. While Willow enjoys cuddling with Sir, she also enjoys cuddling with me or with Rich. We are all very much a pack.
During the day, Sir Peanut enjoys going out onto our screened in lanai (that's Florida talk for "fancy" porch) and sunning himself, then running back in and getting a drink of water. Willow loves to run around in the protected outdoors with Sir. Willow is not as much a sun worshiper as Sir Peanut. Willow likes to find some shade on the outdoor carpet and nap, or better, find a lap. Willow also enjoys riding in the dog carriage with Sir around the neighborhood. She is naturally curious from afar. Rich and I have always worn front packs and carried our Yorkies in them. Willow loves being carried in a front pack. Rich and I each have one. Downtown Delray Beach is a very dog-positive community. We can dine outside with the dogs with each of us carrying one. We can also shop this way too. There are many fancy dog shops. I would have purchased this beautiful dog bed that was shaped like a black sports car if I thought the Willow and Sir Peanut would have slept in it. Instead, we bought a king-size temper-pedic bed for the family. Willow and Sir also have a huge temper-pedic dog bed too. Willow is every bit part of the family. Rich put it best, "She's my little girl."
Willow's favorite pastime is getting a full on belly rub. She especially likes having her armpits and her tushie (behind) rubbed. Willow is not a kisser, but she likes to put her nose to yours and sniff.
Willow has the most gorgeous eyes. When she looks at you, it's as though she can read your mind, or look into your soul. We are all a pack at this point. Willow unlearned her potty pad skills, but she is quickly retraining and is currently going to basic training with Richard so she can teach him how to behave! Thanks Cathie for everything! Jody Abrams & Rich Rosenstein

YoYo now Diego


Ruben w/Yoyo now "Diego" & Julio w/Patrick also adopted from Yorkies Inc.

Diego has been with us for two weeks now.  His adjustment has been fast.  I think it helps Patrick is around to show him his new “accommodations” and “patterns to follow”.   The first day he went outside to the patio, he could not understand it and he was afraid, by the second day after he realized what Patrick was doing, he just followed his lead and now he runs out after Patrick and they both do what needs to be done. He has been trying to make Patrick play with him for two weeks but no luck so far.  He will engage for 1-2 minutes and then he goes away to do his own stuff.  He adjusted easily to food schedule, at first he did not make sense of the “raw vegetable snacks” but within two days he started enjoying his carrots, zucchini and broccoli, he actually likes it.
I am not sure if he had spend a day without people in the house but the first couple days we could see in the security camera he was running around from the moment we left to the moment we came back.  By the end of his first week, he learned to take “naps” during the day.One more time, thank you for letting us take Diego and I will keep you posted in our future trips (he needs to start filling his little passport to catch up with Patrick).
thank you,
Julio Quintana-Rizzo & Ruben Montano-Lopez
