Kingsley is a 5 year old 4.5 lbs Yorkie being fostered in Beechgrove TN. Kingsley had a VERY big day today. He had is surgery! He will be in a device called an external fixator to keep his bones aligned while he heals over the next 3-4 months. He will need ongoing post op visits, xrays and medications but this little guy is tough! He is already so much more comfortable. We are hopeful he will regain full use of his leg and go to his perfect new forever home this summer. We were not sure we would be able to save his leg but THANKS TO all of his AMAZING SUPPORTERS little Kingsley will be whole again. As Kingsley's foster mom, I cannot BEGIN to say THANK YOU enough! Stay tuned as Kingley's journey of recovery continues. And watch his videos n our website www.uyr.us

Initial BIO 3/29/2015 Hello every Puppy and Puppy Lover!
My name is Kingsley! Where to start. I came from a home where I was loved and have lived with my human Mom since I was 8 weeks old. And even though I am a tiny guy she gave me a BIG NAME of KINGSLEY! I was King of our home together.
I have been healthy my whole life until 2-3 months ago when my hair started falling out and I started having an upset tummy. My human Mom took me to the vet multiple times. They couldn’t really find out any reason why so they put me on special “gentle tummy” dog food and that seemed to take care of my tummy issues. But my hair keeps getting thinner and now the top of my head is almost completely bald. It doesn’t bother me…….lots of cute guys shave their heads these days right????
The other and BIGGER problem I have now is that a few weeks ago I started limping and once again my human Mom took me to the vet. They diagnosed me with luxating patellas; which is a fancy way to say my knee caps slide out of place sometimes. This is a very common but manageable condition in Yorkies. The Dogtor put me on some medicine to help with pain and told my Mom I might need to have surgery someday but not needed now. I got better for a little while ……but soon my Mom noticed my right leg was swelling and I couldn’t put any weight on it. Back to the vet we went and they couldn’t figure it out so they sent me to a specialist. Some xrays were done and showed that I have TWO BROKEN BONES in my leg. We don’t know how it happened but in a tiny boy like me anything such as a tumble off the sofa or down the steps could break a bone. The breaks are pretty bad and I have some bone chips floating around inside that really hurt me when I move my leg. The specialist said he could try to fix my leg with surgery; but since I am such a tiny boy with tiny bones there is no guarantee of success and that the surgery would cost almost $5000. My human Mom had already spent thousands on me just to get me diagnosed and she just didn’t have any money left for surgery. She knew I couldn’t stay in pain so she reached out to United Yorkie Rescue to help me get the treatment I need to live a happy and pain free life. As it stands right now I can’t do much at all with my leg except drag it and that REALLY hurts.
And we also need to figure out why my hair is falling out but that is a lower priority right now. Do they make wigs for puppies? If not, I’m totally COOL with the Bald look. AND DID YOU NOTICE I HAVE AN ADORABLE UNDERBITE?
So that is my story in a nutshell. I just got to my foster home and my new humans have other dogs and cats. None of them seem to bother me at all so far but I am kind of in a daze right now. My new humans are helping me stay comfortable by giving me pain medication and some sedatives until I see my new Dogtor tomorrow and hopefully some decisions can be made so that I can start to get better.
Oh…..one more thing. My care is going to cost A LOT OF MONEY. I will FOR SURE need some kind of surgery; I don’t know what kind yet but it will cost a bundle. And I will need to see a skin specialist to figure out why my hair is falling out. I FEEL REALLY BAD ASKING FOR HELP and I know there are lots of puppies out there that need your support but if you could spare ANYTHING…..even a little bit to help me I would be EVER so grateful!
One day, hopefully soon I will be ready to go to a PAWSOME new FOREVER HOME. I SO LONG for the day that someone will want to TAKE ME and all my PERFECT IMPERFECTIONS and LOVE ME TO FOREVER PIECES. Could that possibly be you? My perfect home would be someone without small children due to my tiny size and who is home a lot because I LOVE COMPANY and want to become someone’s Velcro Boy! I’m not ready to be adopted just yet but DON’T LET THAT STOP YOU from applying for me.
