Zoee was surrendered to Berks County Humane Society. She was then taken in by SAY rescue and went to a foster home in Maryland. Within a few days she become very lethargic and stopped eating. She was admitted to the local animal hospital and diagnosed with a liver shunt, and a few other issues that were treated with medication.
Zoee was then brought back to the Lehigh Valley Area so she could be treated by one of the specialists at Valley Central. She was doing well in her new foster home and things seemed to be under control with medication and a prescription diet. After two weeks Zoee became very sick and was admitted to the hospital again. Her ammonia levels were almost triple of what they were in the Maryland Hospital so the surgeon at Valley Central decided it would be best to fix the liver shunt right away. She also had her gall bladder removed and a routine spay. Her surgery went well, and the surgeon said this was one of the biggest liver shunts he had ever seen! So after almost a week in the hospital, Zoee was ready to go back to her foster parents.
Zoee has been home for two weeks now and is doing great! She had a follow-up the other day and got her staples out. They did bloodwork and her levels are back to normal. We were even able to stop some of her medication. Zoee will not be fully healed for a few more weeks.
She is such a sweetheart and loves to snuggle up on the couch. She is just starting to get her energy back and likes playing with her toys. She does well with car rides and going for walks. She has been good with housetraining and she sleeps through the night. She gets along with her furry foster sister and brother. There have been a few times she did not want to share when it came to food or a toy, but we are working on that. She gets upset when you leave the house but eventually settles down and sleeps until you get back home. She does not like to be crated and climbs over small gates.
Zoee still needs dental work done and her knee looked at by our surgeon before she is ready for her furever home. Stay tune to her updates!
Zoee is staying with Jenny and Aubrey in Breinigsville, PA.
Thank you so much to the wonderful people that Sponsored Zoee!

YOUR generosity is appreciated!
KEEP THESE FACTS IN MIND: 1. Yorkies do not usually get along well with small children and can be injured by small children, even ones who love them. Be aware of this and keep them apart. 2. Yorkies can be very difficult (nearly impossible) to housebreak. If you are gone for more than 3 hours at a time, the dog will have to have access to wee wee pads, or need someone to stop in to let him out to potty. 3. We almost NEVER get a puppy (less than one year old) in Yorkie Rescue. If only a puppy will do, check the Yorkshire Terrier Club of America website for a recommended breeder - never buy over the Internet, or from a newspaper ad or a petstore. The heartache you save will be immeasureable. 4. There is no such thing as a "teacup" Yorkie, so don't be misled by such a description. LEARN about the breed BEFORE you decide to adopt. 5. You will need to make arrangements to drive and meet the dog at the foster home which can be in New Jersey, western PA, Maryland, etc. The dog's biography lists where the dog is fostering. We want you to meet the dog with your family and your dog, if you have one. This is a requirement for adoption.
WHAT IS THE ADOPTION FEE? Adoption donations generally vary from dog to dog, it depends on the health, the age and the size of the dog.
Young Yorkies will have a higher adoption donation since they are the most highly sought after and they help to cover the costs of the older dogs who have a harder time finding a loving home. It is sad but true that people overwhelming demand very young dogs when they would be infinitely happier with a mellow adult.
Save A Yorkie Rescue prefers to adopt only in the PA, NJ, western NY, DE, MD, VA, some CT area's. If you are in the NYC area or near Long Island, there is a Yorkie Rescue closer to you.
Be aware that you will be asked to drive to meet and pick up your dog.
