Animal ID: 16-014Justice (male)

Silky Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

    Justice is 5 years old (estimated) and weighs 11 pounds. He is mostly likely a Shihtzu/Terrier mix being fostered in Byrdstown Tennessee. Justice has been aptly named based on our hopes for him as well as for those persons responsible for his current condition. Justice comes to United Yorkie Rescue from our amazing partners at Animal Rescue Corps (ARC). Justice was part of Operation Resolution; a large abandonment/hoarding and cruelty case in Hardin County TN. He was living in a building with many other abandoned animals. The flooring was completed decomposed from urine and feces and the ammonia gas levels were so high that ... (Read More)the first responders had to wear gas masks and hazardous materials gear in order to remove Justice and the other animals from the scene. You can learn more about this case and see footage of Justice and his sibling Murphy by viewing the ARC footage Over the next few days Justice was given nutritious food, a safe place to lay, medical evaluation and medical care. At this point, ARC reaches out to its valued shelter partners to finish the work that they begin. UYR will now take over Justice's care by providing a more permanent foster home, additional medical care and eventually a new forever home. UYR gladly stepped up for Justice and his brother Murphy who were very sick and in fact were the first two dogs to leave the ARC shelter so that they could immediately begin to receive the care that they need. It is likely Justice has lived in severe conditions most of his life%BD'%BD|..we can't know for sure. We can say that his skin in in terrible condition from being literally eaten alive by fleas and demodectic mange. He is also malnourished and dehydrated, has ear infections, infected teeth and he may also have heart worms. He has large open sores over all of his body, his feet are swollen and raw, his lymph nodes are swollen, his skin is thick and leathery and he is in very rough shape. He is already receiving the love and medical care that he needs to heal. He will be going for testing on Monday and we will know for certain then if he has heart worms. He will also need to be neutered before he can be adopted. In spite of his poor medical condition, Justice is just the sweetest and most loving little boy you could EVER hope to meet. He will let you hold him in your arms like a baby, he will give you kisses, he will 'grab' your arm with his paws as if to say 'I'm holding on to you for dear life%BD'%BD|%BD'%BD|..please don't leave me'. He can also be playful as this short video clip demonstrates Justice is not housebroken and not leash trained. How could he be given the life he has known? However, he is very smart and eager to please so we believe he will catch on very quickly. He has only been in his foster home for one day, but so far he is okay with the other pets (dogs and cats) in the home. He eats well and follows his human around like a shadow. We are just getting to know Justice so please stay tuned for updates in the coming days. If you have additional questions about Justice you can email his foster Mom at (Less)
