A volunteer writes: Habla Espanol? Yogi does!! Surrendered by the only family he’s ever known as they are relocating where he is not welcome, we’re told that Yogilived with 3 adults and 2 children, is housetrained, gets along with children, can be uncomfortable among strangers, loves to play and may not do well around other dogs. Yogi was shy in his kennel when I approached, but let me leash him and he happily came out for a walk. Showing off his housetraining skills as soon as we were out the door, he then showed me how nicely he walks on the leash. He checks up often as we walk, and I tell him he’s a buen perro (good dog). We’re all strangers here, and Yogi is doing an admirable job of being a buen perro amongst people he doesn’t know, who speak a language he doesn’t understand. He knows the commands in Spanish for ‘sit’ (sentar) and ‘down’ (abajo). It didn’t take long for Yogito warm up to me, coming into my lap for some petting and a kiss. He’s been beautifully taken care of and is looking for a home with a person or family who will take the time to let him warm up at his own pace, and learn to speak each other’s language. The language of love is universal and that’s what Yogi is looking for.
Yogi is fearful of the shelter environment he walks with a low and fearful body language. He was fearful and repeatedly attempted to get away from the handler during the assessment. Yogi becomes extremely frightened during the tag interaction, tail tucked, yelping and trying to exit room. He was not interested in food, toys or rawhide. Yogi does not approach other dog, attempts to exit.
Yogi was surrender to us. According to his previous owner He lived with 3 adults and 2 children. He gets along well with children but doesn’t get along well with strangers. Yogi does not play with other dogs and he can be uncomfortable around them”. The behavior department feels that he may do best with an experienced adopter. Yogi is somewhat fearful and needs time to warm up to the handler. Yogi has been showing fearful behavior and avoids interaction in the care center. We cannot be certain if behavior may be suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. Please note that behavior may change when Yogiis more comfortable and settled in a home environment. We also recommend a home without children.
