Patsy is one of our many Forever Foster's. Will YOU Sponsor Patsy?
A Forever Foster is a dog that is either older, has a medical condition or a socialization issue and seem to be unadoptable only because we receive no applications for these dogs thus we assume no one wants to adopt them. Save A Yorkie Rescue will not euthanize a dog for these reasons and the dogs remain in rescue to live out their lives with their forever foster family. Their remaining years (no matter what age they are) are spent being well taken care of and loved in their forever foster homes. Save A Yorkie Rescue pays for all of their vet bills, including all medications they may be on, grooming, food/treats if on a special diet and any supplies one of these dogs may need.
Save A Yorkie Rescue is able to provide for our Forever Foster's, only through the generous donations we receive from all of the Yorkie lovers out there!
If you would like to Sponsor one or more of our Forever Foster's, please send a donation through the Sponsor Button on the dog's web page or send a check to:

Patsy has been in rescue and what a roller coaster it has been! I must first say that Patsy wins the award for the world's cuddliest yorkie. She craves affection & love constantly. She loves to be the little spoon and will sleep soundly with both my arms wrapped tightly around her all night long. She would love nothing more than to cuddle with someone all day long as well. If her breakfast is not served right away she will pick her bowl up with her mouth and drop it on the ground to remind you that she is ready to eat mama! She cracks me up when she does this, Lol! When I first agreed to foster Patsy, she was suffering from an ongoing ear infection & a very intense topical yeast infection all over her skin. The skin infection was so bad that she had multiple scabs all over her body from itching & scratching herself raw. It took a solid 4-5 weeks to finally get the right combo of meds to clear these infections up. Several folks have asked me why all of her hair is cut off in some of her more recent pictures. This short hair cut had to be done to allow the topical medications to better absorb which eventually allowed her skin to heal.
As soon as we got past that, Patsy was rushed in for emergency surgery on St Patrick's day. She had emergency pyometra spay surgery. Her uterus was severely infected & had to come out within 24 hours. She recovered well from this surgery with the exception of an ongoing hacking cough. About a week later, she was diagnosed with a severely collapsed trachea which happens to some dogs when they are intubated for surgery and there is no actual cure. This is something she will likely always have for the remainder of her life. She takes a steroid every 24 hours along with a cough medication every 6-12 hours as needed.
Many thanks to the wonderful people that are Sponsoring Patsy!
