Forever Foster

A note about our Forever Fosters

Yorkies Inc has always provided the best veterinary care and done the absolute most to insure that each pup has been given every opportunity to be well, rehabilitated and placed in their own forever home. However, we have found that at times even with these wonderful homes it is not fair to expect someone to take on the emotional and financial responsibility of a terminal pup or a dog with extremely high expenses with an unsure future that may need continuous care and monitoring.  With these rare circumstances in mind we have started our "Forever Foster" program.  These very special pups will remain in their foster homes and be cared for and loved for life. Their medical expenses will covered by Yorkies Inc and the foster home will be providing the physical care and emotional well being, along with all the treats, toys, family time and most importantly, love.

If you would like to become a special part of one these little pupsí lives please consider becoming a Sponsor. A Sponsor can make monetary donations or provide supplies for their use in the Forever Foster Home. All monetary and material donations will go to the particular Forever Foster pup specified. As a Sponsor your name will be listed under the pup you choose to help. If you have felt helpless before with being unable to adopt, or unable to have the time to care for a rescue, for whatever reason, but would like to help, now is your chance to become a Sponsor. Our little pups depend on you!

If you prefer to mail a check or money order send to the address below.
Be sure to include the name of the pup you want to sponsor.

Pixie

Pixie

Pixie came to us in March of 2015. She was just 8 months old and was having problems walking. We took her to Tufts in Grafton to see both an internal specialist and a neurologist. After both Xrays and MRI it was discovered that little Pixie had AAI or Atlanto Axial Subluxation/Instability. This meant either a very risky surgery even for an average sized Yorkie or she lives her life in a neck brace. After seeing two other neurologists to hear their opinions, it was decided that she was doing so well in the neck brace that we would not pursue surgery. Part of this decision was based her size (just 1.7lbs full grown) and the fact she had other skeletal abnormalities. This included shortened ribs on her right side and multiple holes in the back of her skull...possibly an injury that caused the AAI. She also has an elongated soft palate that sometimes makes her breathing labored. Her spirit is in true Yorkie fashion and she has a wonderful personality despite all she has been dealt. Pixie is now almost 3 years old and has waited a long time to find her perfect forever home. While during this time Pixie has settled in nicely and is doing well in her foster home, there have been continued concerns about her breathing and overall health which has made her in need of a constant watchful eye. Because she continues to be such a fragile pup and will always require special care and attention it has been decided that Pixie will remain with us at Yorkies Inc. as a "Forever Foster".


Lola ~ RIP 11/21/16

Lola

Sweet Lola has been severely neglected weighing in at just 3.4lbs!!! She was rescued by a couple who got her out of the situation and got her shaved down to remove all the mats and fleas she was infested with. They then called us right away! She is emaciated and could barely stand. We thought she was blind because she was so weak she was walking into things and stumbling, barely able to stand. She was immediately seen by our vet and had a full exam and blood work. Her kidney enzyme levels were high so we also did a full urinalysis and culture. We are treating her currently with an antibiotic for a slight UTI and will follow up in three weeks to be sure it's clear. In the meantime she is slowly gaining some much needed weight and her strength is coming back. She is showing her personality and she is just a love...so grateful for her warm, clean bed and yummy food. She doesn't have any teeth so she's getting the luxury of special canned food. We aren't really sure of her age...originally we thought much older because of her condition but now we suspect between 6-8yo. Ideally her weigh should be more like 6lbs. Please keep Lola in your thoughts and consider becoming a Friend to Lola to help with vetting expenses.

Updated 8/31/16: Lola is gaining weight and getting stronger! She's done the course of antibiotics and will be retested in a couple weeks. Look how much better she looks already! Thank you to all who have supporter her recovery with donations!

Update 9/20/16: Lola's urinalysis came back NORMAL infection is gone!!! We will now just repeat blood work to be sure the kidney values that were elevated are also back to normal and there's nothing else going on.

Update 10/14/16: Lola continues to do well and has slowly gained weight.  We rechecked her kidney values and unfortunately they are still pretty elevated. She is going back to the vets for another urine culture to see if maybe there is still infection. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers as we are concerned with these elevated numbers she has kidney disease. Thank you.

11/3/2016: Lola's kidney values are still high and it has been determined that she is in the early stages of renal failure. We have her on a special diet and supplements along with a potassium binder. She isn't showing any signs right now and we are thrilled about that. But she will need close monitoring by a vet. We have decided that the best thing for her is to remain in her current foster home where she is loved and is being spoiled. She has become a "Forever Foster" If you'd like to help us with on going expenses that would be very much appreciated. Please send positive thoughts her way

11/21/16: We are very sad to report that Lola lost her battle with kidney disease today. She left us knowing she was loved and in the arms of her foster mom. We want to thank all who came to her side with donations, We also want to extend a special "thank you" to Laura and Richard Cavilla who opened their heart and home to Lola first as a foster, but then as a forever foster home. It takes a special home to take on a pup they know won't be around for a long time...especially after experience the loss of their own pup fairly recently. Still they never hesitated to say YES to Lola! They were her angels on earth!
