Story
Adoption Fee: $400 Fostered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana Age: 3 years Weight: 10 lbs. Major Tom is a Yorkie/Schnauzer mix. 4/14/24 - Major Tom thought it was about time he updated everyone on what was going on with him since he has been in his foster home. He is a sweet boy, but does have fear issues with new people. When he first meets someone, he will bark at them as if he is scared and trying to protect himself. Sometimes he might even go hide if meeting someone new at his foster home where he is secure. But once introduced and comfortable, he will love unconditionally. He loves men and woman, but definitely is more comfortable with woman. In his foster home, he plays and loves on foster mom and dad, but will submissive tinkle if foster dad picks him up too quickly. He would benefit from a young playful dog in the home as he loves to play and can be aggravating to dogs that don't want to play or have his energy level. He loves to play with toys and run and play chase with other dogs. He is not very comfortable walking on a harness and leash, so a secure fenced yard is a must for him. He is a very good sleeping companion and adores laying right next to his humans either on top or under the covers. Major does well at the groomer and is great for his weekly bath and blow dry for his foster parents. He doesn't like a chaotic, busy or loud home, so he would probably do best in a home without children. He is a smart baby. His foster mom taught him to sit for a treat in just 1 day. So he has potential to learn more basic commands. Major is a happy little guy that did not learn a lot of socialization as a young pup and that has resulted in him being a little socially uncomfortable and timid, but he loves his people 100% and is a great pup. He has enjoyed living at his foster home, but wouldn't object to starting his life with his forever family. Since he is scared around new people and will need time to adjust, visits will probably be beneficial in his transition when getting adopted. So, he will need to be adopted in Louisiana to make sure that all goes well. If you feel that you are the one for Major Tom, we are accepting applications now! 11/22/21 - Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! The name is Major Tom, but you can call me Major. Or, you can call me Tommy Boy. Or you can call me Baby. Just call me in a sweet voice, because I love that. I was surrendered by my previous owner because I was too much to handle. My last home did not have enough energy outlets for me and I really need exercise and also needed more socialization. Not getting this resulted in me playing too rough snapping and biting at my mom. She did what was best and surrendered me to YHR. I explained to my foster mom that I didn’t mean it and she said that it’s just puppy antics that needed to be redirected. I do have a very submissive and fearful personality. I’m afraid when meeting new people and will sometimes submissive tinkle. Other times I will try to overcompensate for my fear by barking and growling. Foster mom tells everyone to just sit down and let me get to know them and come to them on my terms. She told me that she understands my issues and we are going to slowly work on them. She’s cool. I’m timid around other dogs too. I’m just learning to play with them a little because there is a Shih-tzu in my foster home that is trying to show me the ropes. So having another dog in the home would be a plus so I can pickup ques from them and it helps me trust humans too. I just don’t need to be around any that are too rough because it scares me. Once I trust you, I’m definitely my human’s dog and I will follow you everywhere and can even get protective of you. I f foster mom and I are in the bed and foster dad walks in, I will bark and growl at him until he comes over and talks sweet to me and pets me. Foster mom said that I cannot go to a home with children of any age or one that is too chaotic because I get overly stimulated easily. Exercise, i.e., walking, playing fetch or chase with my humans, etc. will help with this and help me to gain confidence. I know I’m not doing the best at making myself sound like a gem to be adopted, but I am actually a great boy. I come when called, sleep right next to my human all night perfectly, and loves to give and receive love and affection. I’m learning to play with toys and it is the bomb! I’m pretty good in the potty department as long as you let me out enough and stay out with me If you think you will sneak off and go inside, forget it. I will run back in too and do my business inside. So, it’s up to you if you want to stay out with me, or clean up. Lol I’m not a springy fellow. I’m actually just starting to walk up the steps/benches to the bed. But I still like to be picked up and put in the bed. I will come down the steps though. Foster mom says it is just adorable to see me raise up on the side of the bed and scratch to be picked up. I guess since I’m bigger, she just assumes I’d be able to jump up and down the steps with ease. While I’m continuing to get love and attention here and learning discipline and how to trust, if you think I have the potential to be a part of your home, please apply. Remember, I will need a quiet home with parents that will exercise me regularly, no children, and another non-rowdy dog to learn from and play with. Don’t let my shortcomings scare you off, I’m quite handsome and a great catch. Or so says foster mom and she wouldn’t lie to me. I'll be spending Thanksgiving with my foster family, but maybe by Christmas, I can have a family of my own. Major Tom signing off! 11/12/21 - BIO COMING SOON!

Story
Adoption Fee: $325 Age: 6 years Weight: 10.44 lbs. Fostered in Baton Rouge, LA Email: bryorkiemom@yahoo.com 4/14/24 – Amber has come out of her shell quite a bit since entering her foster home. She loves men and women, but would do best in a home with no children since she can be frightened with loud noises and chaotic movements. Anytime you reach down to pet her, she will roll over and show her belly. She loves attention and loves getting and giving kisses. She loves sleeping in the bed with her foster mom and dad, but is also fine to go and sleep in any one of the numerous dog beds around, or the back of the sofa. Especially if it is crowded. Amber knows her name well and will definitely come when called. She is quite the chow hound at breakfast and supper time, but is very respectful of the other dogs’ bowls and if she goes near them while they are eating (since she finishes so fast), a quick, “No Amber”, deters her automatically. She loves to please her humans. She would do great in a home with other dogs her size, but definitely NO CATS! She is quite the hunter outside chasing birds and squirrels and even stray cats if they happen to get into the yard. She is submissive, but don’t mistake that for a pushover. She is quite the mom when she needs to put another dog in line for something, but she doesn’t start anything. Even though she isn’t your typical looking yorkie, with her longer legs and her full tail, Amber is a very beautiful girl. She has the most angelic face and is just the sweetest baby. She is such a good girl and will use the pee pads when she needs to, but will also do her business on her many trips outside. We have found out that she and Emma would do fine either being adopted together or being separated. They love each other, but they also love all the other dogs in their foster home, so if there is at least one other dog in her new home, she will be just fine. 4/14/23 - Amber, Bebe and Emma all came to YHR from the same home. Their elderly owner could not care for them any longer so surrendered them. All three are very tall, slender, have nice tails and have beautiful faces. They all thought about going into modeling, but after giving it careful consideration, figured the better path would be to join a family and be pampered, loved and retired. They all three seem to have had puppies before and show signs of uncertainness of humans, so were aren’t sure of their full background of socialization. We believe they are sisters as they are all the same age and look a lot alike. When they first arrived, they did not have any vetting done, so they received the works. Bloodwork, dental, spay, shots, heartworm test, etc. Their skin and hair were in pretty bad shape to, but good food and baths are helping the hair feel more like hair and less like hay. Even though they have a lot in common, they do have differences in their personalities, so we asked each of them to give you details about themselves. Hi, I’m Amber. I am such a sweetheart, so I’ve been told everyday since I arrived at my foster home. My foster parents are constantly saying how pretty my face is and how dainty I am and how sweet my personality is. I’m very humble too. I love getting attention and if I even think you are going to want to give me a kiss or pet me, I will scurry right up to you, hunker down and roll over. I am a very submissive girl and appreciate any attention and love I can get. I’m always happy too. My tail is always wagging and my butt wags with it. My whole backend moves when I’m happy, which is all the time now. I just love being talked to and will look at you as if you hung the moon. I haven’t quite got the hang of being held. I’m rather uncomfortable and don’t know what to do since I haven’t been held much previously, but I’m getting better. I’m not so clingy that I follow my humans everywhere, but foster mom keeps inviting me to every room she goes in, so I’m learning to understand that I’m wanted. I’m a very good girl to go outside and do my business (but have been seen going on the pee pad, and sometimes on a rug); I’m not a huge barker (unless the other dogs in the home bark and they need back-up); and I get along fine with other calm dogs. I really don’t care about toys, just comfortable places to lay. I really enjoy having other dogs around, but I don’t like very active, obnoxious ones. I’m a sweet calm girl and would like to share space with another sweet, calm dog or two. I’ve learned to use the bench to get up and down in the bed, however, I haven’t gotten quite comfortable enough to sleep the whole night through in the human bed. I will start off there (because foster mom brings me to bed), but in the middle of the night, I wind up going to sleep on the back of the sofa. I have also learned about all the comfy dog beds in the house and foster mom and dad have been catching me in a new one every so often. So the lowdown on me is that I’m VERY sweet, pretty, kind, gentle, dainty and loving and I’m looking for a home with a fur-sibling or two, a mom and dad, no young children, a fenced in back yard (doesn’t have to be large), healthy food and nightly massages (I absolutely love my belly rubbed). I know that is a tall order, but I’m a believer and I truly believe that there is a perfect home out there just for me, or me and one of my sisters. I’m not settling this time. I’m happy in my foster home, so I will hold out until what I read gives me the warm and fuzzies. Wouldn’t you? Thanks for understanding!

Story
Adoption Fee: $150 Age: 10 years Weight: 6 lbs. Fostered in Louisiana Email: bryorkiemom@yahoo.com 4/14/24 – Hey everybody! Remy here. Foster mom says that I haven’t really gotten interest, so I wanted to send out a little note to let ya’ll know that I am still here and still in need of a permanent home. Still have the enlarged heart, but what dog my age doesn’t that has been through heartworm treatment. I co-exist fine with the other furbabies in my foster home, so that’s a plus. I do like sleeping with foster mom and some of the others in the big bed, but will also have nights where I like my space and will sleep in one of the dog beds. I don’t have any teeth, but I eat hard kibble with a little soft food in it just fine. I love my foster mom, but I will actually give attention to any human who wants to give me attention. Not much of a player with toys, so that should save a little money. If you are looking for a new baby to add to your home and you want one that isn’t all over you all the time, I’m your man. I don’t mind sitting in your lap and getting some attention, but not real big on being held for long periods of time. I’m one of those macho guys that likes some space. Also, I’m not big on public dispays of affection…. Kissing. I’m mean I just feel I’m at the age where we can keep our relationship strictly platonic. And I won’t get jealous if you feel the need to give another furry one attention. I think all this is a plus, and I know that someone out there thinks the same. So, take a few moments and fill out the application on the website and maybe we can connect! 9/26/23 - I just wanted to update everyone on my condition. I do have an enlarged heart, but that is expected with a baby my age with the heavy load of heartworms that I had prior to completing treatment. I've completed my steriods and am doing much better, but to be on the safe side, I better not run around acting like a 2 year old. I can still play, just need to act my age now. Thanks for all your prayers. 9/14/23 - Good Morning everyone! Remy here. Apparently, I just needed a little specialized attention last night with my labored breathing and ER visit. I told the dogtor to call foster mom this morning and let her know that I am feeling MUCH better. Breathing better and no ill side effects. Seems it was more than likely some inflammatory response to the heartworm disease that I just completed treatment for. I will go home on a short dose of steriods but should be 100% soon. I might be checking out of this hotel as early as this afternoon if all goes well and then I'm looking for to some r&r at home. Hope foster mom and all the fur-siblings missed me. 9/13/2023 - Remy had completed heartworm treatment and has been doing well. This evening he started having some breathing difficulties and was taken to the EC. He has been admitted and medicated for comfort and is in oxygen. We will update as we know more tomorrow. 7/8/23 - Remy will start heart worm treatment on Thursday, July 13. Keep him in your prayers. 5/3/23 - I didn’t ask to be born; I didn’t ask to be homeless; and I certainly didn’t ask to be heartworm positive. But I am/was all of these things. Born because no one spayed momma. Homeless because no one wanted momma’s kids. And heartworm positive, because no one ever gave me heartworm prevention, which all dogs should receive monthly. I guess I could either get mad and hold a grudge, or be happy that I was found and brought to Yorkie Haven Rescue. I choose the latter. I’m in a foster home now and being treated like a King… King Remy. I like the sound of that. I officially change my name to King Remy! J So, King Remy, (apparently, I’m speaking of myself in the third person now), will be neutered and have a dental cleaning (wow, do I ever need that) on May 18th and will start heartworm treatment in July. This Yorkie Haven place sure is nice to do all this for me. But King Remy is worth it! There are other dogs in my foster home, but I’m not really a player. It might come later on, but it seems all I’m interested in right now is humping. Everyone in this household will sure be happy when I’m neutered. This wasn’t a problem when I was living on the street. Another downfall of living on the street is that there was never anyone to get attached too. So I’m not quite as clingy as I understand most yorkies are. I also don’t understand or play with toys. I’m not a huge kisser and don’t crave to be held. I don’t really bark much, but do eat very well and I'm not really scared of noises. I’m hoping to update this bio after I’ve been neutered, had my teeth cleaned and completed heartworm treatment, to say….. that I follow my human(s) everywhere, love to be held and give kisses, play with other dogs my size, and can play with and tear up a toy like no one’s business. Even though I cannot officially join my new family until heartworm treatment is complete, I’m taking applications now so I can get used to my last name. King Remy __________!

Story
Adoption Fee: $600 Age: 1 year; 2 months Weight: 5 lbs. Fostered in Baton Rouge, LA Email: bryorkiemom@yahoo.com 11/2/23 - We have learned a little more about Dylan since he has been in his foster home longer, so thought it was time for an update. Dylan, even though he likes playing with younger, very active dogs, he might do better as an only dog. He will need alot of activity and loves his walks daily because he is 100% active. He does have quite the attitude and can be very bossy, and nippy. He will bite on occasions. He does not like his face being messed with and does need an experienced adopter who can be strong with him yet not so strong that it makes him anxious and gets him overly stimulated mentally. He definitely needs a man in his life because he adores men. He does love his foster mom, but will be happier if there is a dad around. If you are interested, and his update hasn’t made him seem too crazy, the first step in our process is our online adoption application. 8/13/23 - Everyone put your hands together for DJ Dylan! Yo! Yo! Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Dylan, if you’re wondering what I’m up to, I just be chillin. I was found on the streets by a good Samaritan, she brought me to the vet and became my new friend. She looked for my owners far and wide, but I guess when they said they loved me, they must have lied. I’ve got a dope disposition and I’m happy all the time, although I’ve been through a lot, I’m doing just fine. I love other dogs and can’t wait to have a fur-brother or sister to play with. I love snuggling with the other dogs in my foster home and playing chase with them. We all sleep with foster mom and don’t even argue about who gets to lay closest to her. Even though I love my foster mom, I absolutely LOVE men. So, I would like it if I could have a mom and a dad. My vocals are strong, so no apartments or attached housing. We go on walks every morning and I am the love of the neighborhood. I don’t meet a stranger (except for small children), and no one can pass me up without meeting, petting and sniffing me. I am pretty agile, so you can usually find me on the back of the sofa or a chair. I’m pretty good at the benches/steps too, so don’t think you are sleeping in the big bed without me. I love playing with toys, so wouldn’t mind an army of those in my new home. Foster mom has puppy pads down which really helps with my tiny bladder. But I’m not picky, I’ll use grass, concrete, pads, etc. Even though I have energy and love to play, I choose a lap over everything, hand down. I’ve been told that I’m not the best at grooming, especially around my face, but I’m sure I will get better with time. Oh, I can’t forget to tell you that we will need a front doorway that is secure since I’m very small and quick. We might want to invest in one of those baby gates that you have to enter before getting to the front door. Safety first! Let’s sum it up. I’m cute, I’m sweet, I’m playful, I’m energetic and a magnet for all humans. So, I’ll end by saying that, “Even though my last home was whack, YHR will find me a new great crib, and that’s a fact! Peace Out!

Story
Adoption Fee: $100 Age: 14 years Weight: 9 lbs. Fostered in Prairieville, LA Email: bryorkiemom@yahoo.com 11/22/23 - What’s that you say honey? You are going to have to talk louder because I’m hard of hearing. My eyesight also isn’t what it used to be because of these darn cataracts. And to top it off, I recently went to the vet and was told I have a grade 4 heart murmur. It’s ok though, the vet gave me some medicine to take, (Enalapril, 2.5 mg., ½ tab twice daily; Furosemide, 20 mg., ½ tab twice daily; and Vetmedin, 2.5 mg., ½ tab twice daily) and it makes me feel like new. Well, maybe not like NEW, but heck, what do you expect from a 14-year-old yorkie? Oops, there goes my mind getting all side-tracked again. My name is Scottie and I entered Yorkie Haven Rescue because my mom’s eyes, ears and mind weren’t all they used to be either and she had to go live in a nursing home. This old age thing doesn’t play favorites does it? Well, I hope my age doesn’t scare you away, because I’m definitely not ready to check out, just ready to check into a new home that wants a distinguished older man. Someone they can watch their soaps with and pet as they relieve their stress. Anyway, I’m in a great foster home now and foster mom and dad just love me to pieces. They are always telling me what a good and sweet boy I am. They sure do know how to make an old-timer feel special. They have 2 other dogs here at my foster home and I fit right in and we’ve been known to play a little. However, I do think that a home without young dogs and children would be best since I am in retirement. Foster mom and dad let me sleep with them and I really love that, but I also don’t mind taking naps on the sofa or in a few of the dog beds around here. Once I warm up, I love all people, but since my sight and hearing are diminished, I’ll need you to be gentle and slow in the beginning. I’m really good about doing my business outside when taken and there are potty pads inside that I’ve been known to use as well. I hope you are ok though if I make a mistake since my bladder isn’t what it used to be either. With all of the cons I’ve been telling you about myself, I figured I better throw in some pros so you don’t quit reading my bio and move on to the next dog. I’m not a huge barker, which I’ve been told is a plus for my breed; I sleep good; I eat good; I’m an awesome car buddy; I’m a sweet snuggler; I’m cute; I’m loveable and I like to give kisses. Did that level the playing field? I think it should! I might have a few body parts that don’t function at 100% anymore, but I still feel love and have a lot of it to give. I’m an unconditional kind of guy, and if just given the chance, I would make you the happiest dog owner EVER!
