My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Adoption Fee: $200
Fostered in Texas
Age: 10 years
Weight: 4.8 lbs.

January 1, 2023 - Harley is stable on the Lomotil for coughing. He does cough some when running and playing, but has not experienced any respiratory distress.

His skin is doing really well. We changed his treatment and he now gets a spot treatment weekly of Dermoscent and a bath weekly in Dermoscent shampoo. This has been amazing for him.
He has not had any episodes of GI issues and or pancreatitis but must remain on RX low fat food. (Royal Canin) If he does have breakthrough itching, he receives a Cytopoint injection at the vet but the treatments above have decreased that frequency dramatically.

Harley is quite the charming little senior boy who loves, loves, loves to play fetch with his toys! He sleeps on a pillow next to his foster mom. Because he has been with us for some time, we do want to do a local, slow adoption so that the adjustment will be easier for him.
He is located in Kemah, TX.

7/1/21 - 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.

6/29/21 - 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.

6/11/21 - 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.

3/30/20 - 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.

1/27/20 - 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

More about this rescue

Yorkie Haven Rescue Group was founded in 2006 and we are an approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Our caring volunteers share their many talents to ensure that all yorkies we rescue from "throwaway land" are safe and can live their lives in a loving, healthy and safe environment - a haven where they will be forever loved.

We have a wonderful base of volunteers located throughout the United States, have no paid staff and are funded solely by kind donations from the public. Before any rescue is placed in a forever home, the pup is spayed/neutered, heartworm checked and made current on all vaccines.
