Yigo is such a happy-go-lucky pup who had a harsh life before being rescued. He was found on a remote mountain with a chain collar deeply embedded in his skin yet he was still so friendly and wagged his tail non-stop. He loves to snuggle with his humans on the couch and is quite a cuddly bug. He currently gets about two hours of leisurely walks around the neighbourhood and always has a big silly smile greeting everyone although sometimes he doesn’t understand that others can be apprehensive of his size. Yigo is looking for a loving and moderately active family without young kids who can provide him with further obedience training.
Yigo is neutered (April-27-2015), up to date with routine shots, micro-chipped, de-wormed and tested negative for heartworm.
