Meet Shelly. She came into UYR from a hoarding situation. Shelly is 5 years old and weighs 11 lbs. She is being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL UPDATED BIO 11/29/2017: Hi, Shelley here - just wanted to let ya'll know that I am still doing great. My skin infection has healed nicely and my hair is growing in so much that it looks like I may be getting a haircut soon. Foster Mom says that I am a total love bug. I love people, I love doggies, I love food and I love a good squeaky toy. Oh, and I really love treats - yum yum!! Wait. Did I mention attention? Oh yeah, I love that, too. My perfect home would be one with tons of love. Another doggie would be fun, too. Oh, wait. I love to play, too. I do pretty darn good with pee-pee pads. There have been a couple of accidents and a few of them may have potentially been me. See - there are other dogs here so I won't confess to anything since there is a lot of room for reasonable doubt. Haha! Would I like a fenced-in yard? Of course. It's not necessary but I certainly won't turn it down if you have one. I like sleeping with my people and many times I go to bed first to get the best spot. Don't worry, I will leave some room for my humans. Would I like a stay-at- home parent? Of course, but it's not necessary. Well, maybe it is unless I have another fur-friend with me since I don't think I would like being home all alone. It would just be too boring. I am way too social for that. If you have any questions about me you can email my foster mommy. Ok, that's all folks. I hope you are lucky enough to have me in your life, I will love you forever and ever and ever ‰'Û|‰'Û|. UPDATED BIO 10/15/2017: Hi Everypuppy, it's me, Shelly. Everything is going pawsome for me in my foster home. I still have this silly skin infection and now another ear infection, but things are looking up and I am improving each day. Foster mom reminds me that my skin and ears were in such terrible condition when I came into UYR from a really bad hoarding situation. Life is sooooo much better now and I feel so loved and really like the attention that I get from my foster mom Foster mom also tells me every day that my forever family is out there somewhere, and that they are patiently waiting to find me. I am such a good girl with all the medicated baths that I have to get 3-4 times a week. But I really like the attention that I am getting because no one ever loved me like I'm loved now. I will take attention any way I can get it, haha. Anyway, when I have my baths, it is a one-pup-tub so the spotlight is on me and only me. I love that. I also really love a good squeaky toy after my bath and guess what? I can squeak all night if I want to - how cool is that? I know that there are a lot of people out there reading about me, and I want everyone to know how much I appreciate all of you. Please remember that I'm still looking for my forever-and-always home! Could that be your home? UPDATED BIO 08/12/2017: Shelley is proving to be is so sweet in spite of her previous home, which was a hoarder's home. At the vet, it was discovered that Shelley has ear infections, fleabite dermatitis and skin infections and hookworms, but she is still so happy to be free of her prior life. Her poor little body was just eaten up by flea bites, but she is on the mend and flea-free - hooray! Shelley's nails were so long that Foster Mom felt like she needed to ask her if they were acrylic or gels, lol! Foster Mom already loves her so much! Shelley will soon be ready for her forever home - could it be your's? INITIAL BIO 08/12/2017: Shelly came into UYR today from an horrendous hoarding situation . Please watch our website for pictures and updates very soon. PLEASE NOTE: UYR took in a total of 11 dogs today from this hoarding situation, including Shelly. None of these dogs received any routine veterinarian care and all will need to receive vaccinations, worming, microchips, dentals, fecals, HW testing and will be altered. Please help us help Shelly and the other precious yorkies taken in today by donating to their vetting expenses, which will be very high due to the number of dogs coming in today. No donation is too small. You can donate to any of these dogs by clicking on the Donation Button below. Thank you from Shelly and the other dogs, and especially from the folks at United Yorkie Rescue who participated in their rescue/transport and to the foster moms and dads who so eagerly stepped forward to foster these very needy little dogs.
