Animal ID: 16-236Pepper (female)

Maltese Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    UPDATED BIO 01/30/2017 Pepper is a sweet little yorkie mix. She is only a year old puppy. Pepper weighs just about 7.5 pounds. Pepper is being fostered in Clearwater, FL. Pepper's adoption fee is $425 and includes all vetting (neuter/spay, dental cleaning, immunizations, microchip and chip registration). A Vet reference, personal references, and home visit are required for adoption. You may apply to adopt Pepper by going to our website at www.unitedyorkierescue.org and completing the adoption application located on our home page. THE PEPPER POST: Pepper has sure had a heck of a first year on this planet, but she has ... (Read More)proven that she is not only brave, but she is a fighter. Pepper was found wandering in the central Florida area on 01/26/2016 and was picked up by Animal Control. It was discovered that she had a shattered hip and two broken legs. Once UYR rescued her and she promptly saw the orthopedic surgeon, it was determined that her injuries were months old, and she was not a candidate for corrective surgery. Because medical intervention was not sought by her prior owners at the time of injury, the bones did not heal correctly, which has resulted in Pepper having a significant limp. Like most shelter strays, there is no history about her short life or her former owners, except for the fact that they were severely negligent in not tending to her injuries when they occurred. However, Pepper's foster parents have found that she was initially shy and skittish, but this behavior has improved since she came into her foster home. She doesn't seem to care for other dogs, and the reason for this is unknown, but it is evident that this little princess did not have a happy past with either humans or other animals. She does warm up to people pretty quickly when she is assured that they mean her no harm, and is just looking for love. Pepper is still very much a young puppy in spite of her health challenges, so she has that precious puppy behavior of chewing on shoes and getting in the trash can. It is obvious that no one ever took the time with this little girlie to teach her proper house-training habits, but her foster parents have been working with her on this with good results. Pepper's perfect home would be with someone who can spend a lot of time with her, as she seeks human companionship ~ one of her favorite things to do is to leisurely lounge beside her foster parents. It would be a huge bonus if her forever home had a fenced-in back yard, as like all puppies, she loves to explore and is very curious about her surroundings. PLEASE NOTE: Pepper likes to walk between your legs like a cat when you walk, so this can be a severe tripping hazard. Please take this into account if you have balance or stability issues or use a walker or cane, as it may not be the right home for her. Pepper is unable to jump up and special care should always be given to her hind area as not to cause further damage. A home with stairs or young children will not be considered for her. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-29-00145Lucky (male)

Maltese    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Lucky is a adult male Maltese, puppy cut noted in picture. Our busy lifestyles have changed with our aging adult. We are never home except to sleep, which is heartbreaking to have to kennel up our dog. He gets very little attention these last few months and would love to have someone to play with him, kids or adults. He loves to lay at your feet, or sleep anywhere. He has a very calm demeanor. He would do well with a yard with fence to play. He goes outside just to potty and loves to just hang out in the yard. We are not able to keep dogs off leash where we live now.

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-17-00133MacKinley (male)

Maltese    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    MacKinley is a very sweet Maltese. He is high energy and very loving. He is currently in a home with 4 teenagers and 4 other pets (2 dogs/2cats). He doesn't get the attention he deserves. He needs consistant contact as he is not 100% house trained. We believe if he was given the attention he required this would no longer be an issue.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Scooter is a cool dude who has places to go! That's because he's now been rescued from a horrible situation - he was hit by a car over a year ago, leaving him paralyzed, and his previous owner just left him with no vet care to drag himself around a concrete patio. He's now safe in rescue, vetted, and has a brand new pair of wheels he loves to zoom around on! Scooter is looking for an adopter or foster who is understanding of paralyzed pooches (he has paralysis related potty issues that must be managed). He's FULL of LOVE! Please SHARE him to give him the chance he deserves! #nopawleftbehind #adoptdontshop #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedog ... (Read More)#specialneeds %9D%A4%8F%90%BE%9D%A4%8F (Less)

Animal ID: 16-172Lambchop (male)

Maltese Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Lambchop is an adorable 4 year old slightly overweight Malti-poo. He is being fostered in Largo, FL. UPDATED BIO 02/14/2017: Hi there everyone! It's me - Lambchop! Things have been going well for me in my foster home. I have been doing really good on my 'alternative way of eating' and weigh 20 pounds - wahoo! Foster Mom said that if I lose another 3-5 pounds, I will be at a healthy weight. That should be easy because I love to run and play and go for walks. The doctor says my thyroid levels are normal, which is great! He also said that I will need thyroid meds for the rest of my life, but I don't mind taking it. The medication ... (Read More)is Soloxine 2mg and Foster Mom said a 135 tab supply only costs about $32 and lasts for 4-1/2 months. That's less than $1.75 per week - she said I am soooo worth that! I have had a couple of prospective adopters fall through - no fault of mine, though. So, I am still looking for my perfect forever home. You ask - What would my perfect forever home look like? Well, it would have a fenced-in yard because I love to run and play and chase wildlife. Foster Mom says that if there's water, I may want to romp and play in it - uh-oh. She said a fenced yard would keep me safe. I like to play with other dogs, so a fur-buddy would be fun (but only one). I also wouldn't mind being the only dog so that I could get all the attention I didn't receive in my prior home. One thing is for sure - I do not like cats, so no cats in my perfect home!! I will bark at them and chase them and they make me unhappy, and my barking probably makes them unhappy, too. My perfect forever parent would be someone who is committed to my exercise and medication requirements and who would give me all the love and attention I desire and deserve! So in a nutshell, I love to be outside walking and playing; going for stroller and car rides; and love spending time with my person. If that person is YOU, I promise that I will be a great companion who will give you lots of love and shower you with kisses! Love, Lambchop! Lambchop's adoption donation is $350.00 and includes all vetting (neuter, dental cleaning, immunizations, microchip and chip registration). A Vet reference, personal references, and home visit are required for adoption. You may apply to adopt Lambchop by visiting our website at www.unitedyorkierescue.org and completing the adoption application located on our home page. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-15-00144Clyde (male)

Maltese Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Clyde is pictured on the right. Clyde came from a house where he was neglected and left with no shelter. He started off fearful but has turned into a total sweetheart now that he knows he can trust humans. Clyde is house broken and loves walks. He loves to give kisses and gets along with anyone. We want Clyde to be adopted with Bonnie, our Schnauzer. They were rescued together and love to be together. This is a pair of dogs that will bring love into your home, but they will need some special attention and some extra time to adjust. Bonnie and Clyde need someone to let them in to their hearts and give them a second chance.
