UPDATED BIO 12/09/2016: Hi Yorkie Lovers, It’s me - Molly! I’ve been with my foster family since August 2016. I’ve had a long, tumultuous journey. The majority of my life was volatile. I was rescued from my life at a puppy mill, where I was expected to deliver liter after liter of sweet puppies for them to be heartlessly taken away from me and sold for profit. The small dog rescue that helped me out of that deplorable situation did not do their due diligence, because I was eventually adopted to a family that could not offer me the love and support I needed, so I ended up on the streets where a neighbor found me and contacted the United Yorkie Rescue.

Unfortunately, I had a lot of adversity to overcome both physically and emotionally. I have had two dental procedures due to my severe dental disease. I’m also still being treated for the severe dermal yeast infection with anti-fungal medication that makes me feel sickly. I also have two dislocated knees, which my foster family discovered, because they thought I was losing my vision or possibly had a brain tumor (I don’t!). My symptoms included falling down suddenly, uneven balance and shakiness when walking. After visiting the nice specialist, they discovered the culprit was my dislocated knees. Recently, I was diagnosed with a severe ear infection and I am currently on a strict regimen of antibiotics and ear drops.

Emotionally, I have struggled to accept the love and companionship offered by my foster family. I’ve never known unconditional love and cuddles, but I am quickly adapting to it …… I love this thing they call “cuddling.” And napping inside with my favorite blanket is what I enjoy most. I also love belly rubs, treats and dinner- time. However, I am still skittish and adverse to anyone touching my head, ears or mouth.

My foster mom says I can only go to a family that understands that I will never be house-trained and I will require a lot of patience when I go outside, because it takes me a while to find the right spot. Additionally, my forever home should not expect a playful, youthful puppy. I cannot go to a family of rowdy children or dogs and every family will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Also, I will need a fenced-in yard, because I do not like collars or leashes.

Furthermore, it is important that my family understands the emotional abuse I endured for the majority of my life and realizes all I need is love, support and a cozy place to nap.

I am so thankful for United Yorkie Rescue. Because of UYR, I have been given a second chance at life, love and the pursuit of happiness. My foster mom says that I am coming out of my shell every day. I owe that to the great support system UYR provides! I understand that not everyone is willing to take on a senior dog with physical and emotional baggage, but I do hope you will be willing to make a donation to my continuing recovery! Every little bit of support and love you send my way ensures that my medical care will be fully-funded, so that UYR can continue to take in other unfortunate Yorkies just like me. Please send me some love and happy wishes during this holiday season.

XOXO, Molly
