Meet tiny Olive. Life had been pretty hard for this very little girl. She ended up at the shelter sick and blind. A wonderful lady who does big dog rescue rescued her. That fateful day she went to pick up a lab and the shelter officer showed her this tiny yorkie they found wandering up the road. She was skin and bones, hairless, and blind from cataracts in both eyes. Olive had one hour left before the shelter was going to euthanize her and her life would come to an end. This wonderful person immediately took her home and started to care for her. She paid for Olive to have the cataract surgery that has restored her sight. With her loving care Olive’s hair has grown back, she put on some weight, and is now a healthy dog.

This angel knew that Olive needed to go to a Yorkie rescue. This way the best home could be found for her. So little Olive became a United Yorkie Rescue dog, and we will make sure that Olive gets the absolute perfect forever home. She will never ever find herself alone, sick, and on the streets again.

Olive is such a happy, sweet girl. She is very healthy, though she will need to have eye drops put in her eyes twice a day for her life. What a small price to pay for being able to see again. Olive needs a few more vaccinations and her spay and she will be ready for her forever home. Olive gets along with other dogs, and she can go to a home with children over the age of 14 who understand that she is a small dog who needs to be treated very gently and with great care.

If you think Olive is the dog for you please submit an adoption application for her.
