Weight: 54lbs / 24.6kg


Personality: Shy with new people, affectionate and loyal towards his humans, good with dogs and cats


Yo loves to go out for walks and car rides.  Once he has bonded with his humans he has a strong recall.  He’s submissive towards other dogs but not particularly playful with new ones.  Yo, a starved stray puppy, was kept by a pet shop owner tied in the back alley but when the store relocated he was left behind.  Yo’s rescuer provided him a place at her shelter but he was crated majority of time due to overflow of strays.  He would growl when new people approach his crate but as soon as he’s let out or if the person opening the crate has a leash on hand he would be fine.  Yo is looking for a moderately active family who can provide further socialization with people and dogs.


Yo is neutered (November-24-2012), up to date with routine shots, micro-chipped, de-wormed and tested negative for heartworm.
