Yogi is a pudgy little 8 week old Shiba Inu mix puppy breath and a talent for snuggling. Yogi and his brothers were a charming and welcome surprise to their mother’s startled guardian only a few weeks after she was adopted. In fact everyone was surprised, when Yogi’s mother suddenly started acting uncharacteristically restless one evening, and by morning was gently nursing her four little babies. KayDee, a sweet and friendly Shiba Inu mix had come into rescue, and was quickly adopted. A date was set for KayDee’s alter, and no one, not even the vet who initially examined her, noticed that KayDee was pregnant with four little puppies.
Yogi will probably weigh between 40 and 60 pounds when he’s full grown. Like each of his three brothers, Yogi sports a small diamond shaped dark spot at the base of his tail, just like his mother. Everyone in Yogi’s new family will need to understand that Yogi is a very active puppy, and will probably grow up to be a wonderful dog, but he is not for a family seeking an "easy" puppy, because there is no such thing. Please remember that as beautiful and cuddly as Yogi is at the moment, he will grow into an adult canine companion in no time at all. You should also be prepared for the usual trial of rearing a young puppy including the chewing, crying, potty training, and constant demands. For this reason we would prefer that Yogi’s new guardians have experience with young puppies and understand their special needs. Remember, just like kids, they grow up real fast, and need lots of patience, love and attention along the way.
An adoption fee applies to Yogi’s adoption but it covers his vet care to include his alter, all shots, rabies, fecal and worming medication, flea/tick preventative, heartworm preventative, micro-chipping, and grooming. If you would like to learn more about this charming little chap you are invited to send an email to Contact@DogsOnly.org or complete an online adoption application by clicking the links at the top or bottom of this page. It is also possible to meet Yogi at the DogsOnly adoption showings at Petco in West Little Rock on Chenal Parkway across from Target and Home Depot every Saturday and Sunday from 1-4. Please be sure and call (501-219-9907) before you come to visit him to make sure that Yogi is still available for adoption.
If you don't find that special companion you are looking for in the DogsOnly rescue, rehabilitation, and re-home program then please Little Rock Animal Services or one of the many other central Arkansas rescue organizations to save a rescued canine companion.
