Story
Adoption Fee: $150 Age: 10.5 years Weight: 10 lbs. Fostered in Baton Rouge, LA Email: bryorkiemom@yahoo.com 2/1/24 - Picture it, living with your owner that loves you and you love her, eating well, sleeping with her, getting all the love and attention. Things could not be better! Fast forward some years, owner passes and as devastated as I was to lose her, my grieving had to be put on hold since her family did not plan on keeping me or even finding me a new home. They opened the door, and out I went. I wandered around the neighborhood for a little while until some nice soul picked me up and brought me home. He had another dog and he quickly decided that two was too much for him to handle. He asked around his neighborhood and a sweet lady took me in. She never intended on keeping me permanently, but weeks turned to months and months turned to a couple years. She has alot on her plate right now with her mom and even though she tries, she is not able to be the mom and owner that I need. So while I am thankful for everyone that scooped me up off the street and gave me a place to stay, I am now in the market for my last home that will match what I need. If you are in the market for a Yorkie, I hope you know that we are not shy and always know what we want, so let me tell you what that is. Since I’m getting older, my eyesight and hearing aren’t quite what they used to be. But hey, don’t judge, everyone ages. I’m a happy little guy that would love to have my own person. I don’t want an active, loud or chaotic household. Since I’m older, when I fall asleep, which can be anywhere, I sleep hard, so it I’m startled awake, I snap when I wake up. Just understand that it is scary for me and be gentle if you need to awaken me please. I do have a voice and am not afraid to use it, so no apartments, or any attached housing. Wouldn’t want to be the reason you are kicked out of your home. Lol I would really love someone that is up in age like myself and retired and can stay home with me a lot. I’m a 100% type guy. I’m all in and want an owner who can be all in. I’m an early riser and will bark to let you know I need to go out and want my breakfast. I tend to be food aggressive, but the way I see it, fix my food, put it down, and go do your thing. You can pick up the bowl after I’m finished and have walked off. I love going for walks because it keeps me in shape and I can keep up with whose been in my neighborhood. I am friendly when we meet up with people, and other animals on the walks, but I tend to be protective of my house. So, when people come visit, I bark for a while. I’m a very sweet dog that can sometimes act dominate to try to be #1. So I would probably do best as an only dog with a stronger owner. Sometimes I think I am an Australian Cattle Dog because I will try to herd my people by nipping at their feet. Hence, the need for a strong, in charge owner that knows how to love me, but keep me in line. When foster mom needs to get me in check, she need only show me the fly swatter (she’s never used it though) and I straighten up my attitude toot sweet. I’m not too much into cuddling, but I will sit at your feet and let you rub me with your feet ALL DAY LONG! I love it! I also like belly rubs if you don’t mind getting on the floor on my level. I am very treat motivated if you want to really teach me some things. Now, I know when I change homes, I will have to get acclimated and may have some mistakes, but I truly haven’t used the bathroom in foster mom’s house. But, she does bring me out a lot. So, you will have to do your part. Well, I guess that’s all I have for now. If you have any questions, just email foster mom, sand if you are interested, fill out an application. Let’s see if you can be my Valentine, for the rest of my life!

Story
Adoption Fee: $400 Fostered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana Age: 3 years Weight: 10 lbs. Major Tom is a Yorkie/Schnauzer mix. 4/14/23 - 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: $400 Age: 2.5 years Weight: 6 lbs. Fostered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana Email: bryorkiemom@yahoo.com 2/5/24 - Shelby has completed heartworm treatment and has tested negative. She is a new woman ready to look at applications. 1/7/24 -Ok, I’ll just start off by letting you know that I realize that I am not the most adoptable pup in the world. I really have a fear of humans right now. Some have really worked me over in my lifetime and it’s just not that easy letting my guard down. My sister, Molly, and I were locked in cages since we were puppies. We produced litter after litter to make money for greedy people. We had no contact with humans except to be treated badly which has resulted in our total fear. We also were never brought to the vet, or given heartworm prevention, which has resulted in both Molly and I being heartworm positive. We have started our treatment and received our second round on December 28th. We are doing well for now and not having any complications thank goodness. We are used to our foster mom now, but still don’t like to be picked up by her or anyone. And if anyone new comes over, we will run and hide or freeze in one spot. Seems like it should be easy for us to forget our past when people are trying so hard to be nice and talk sweet to us, but it doesn’t work that way. I’m sure after a long-term relationship with VERY understanding and VERY patient parents, I’ll figure out that you aren’t wanting to hurt me and I’ll come around. Now dogs are a different story. They seem to be my safe haven. So, if you want to adopt me, you must have another dog(s). I also would not hate it if you wanted to adopt Molly and I together, but we can go separately. It’s not that I play with the other dogs, but I need them for comfort, guidance and learning. Since Molly and I have been in our foster home, the other dogs have taught us that the threshold of the back door isn’t scary, so we follow the others in now instead of darting from corner to corner in the back yard. However, I sometimes resort back and want to stay outside and foster mom has to act like she is shutting the door on me to convince me to come in. They are also teaching us when it is breakfast and supper time. We all get excited at this time! Pee pads are another thing we’ve learned. We will also go outside, but still make mistakes. I haven’t graduated to sleeping in the human bed. Molly and I usually sleep together in a dog bed/or on a comforter on the floor in the bedroom where everyone else sleeps. I absolutely love toys and play with them alot. We had another foster in our home recently and she taught me to tear all the toys up, so now that is what I do. But I still love them. I am more scared of things than Molly is. I'm not brave enough to want foster mom to pick me up and definitely don't go up for any pets. I will need a very secure back yard since walking on a harness and leash scare the dickens out of me. I am a knee-jerk reactor and if given the opportunity, would bolt away. In a way, both Molly and I have sweet, but feral personalities. We don’t like it and aren’t proud of it. Foster mom tells us that there are people out there that will still be interested in loving us and giving us all the time in the world to trust and love. We sure hope she is right, but for now, she and her other dogs are doing a really good job of helping us learn this outside world that seems so large and scary. I know what you’re thinking, “Why adopt this dog, she’s hopeless”. Well, this is your chance to really “adopt” and “rescue” a poor lost soul that will in time come around and is literally the meaning of “a diamond in the rough”. I might not greet you at the door with tag wags and licks, I won’t cuddle up next to you on the sofa to watch a movie, and my eyes are usually very wide open like a deer in headlights, but I really deserve another chance at a life that was stolen from me at the hands of inhumane people.

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!

Story
Adoption Fee: $150 Age: 10 years Weight: 6 lbs. Fostered in Louisiana Email: bryorkiemom@yahoo.com 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 __________!
