You won’t find sweeter chocolate than this!

Yukon is a 4-year-old chocolate Lab with a history.
  
Yukon joined our program a year ago after being hit by a car and left to suffer from his injuries.

His outward wounds healed but the bone fractures and muscle damage remained, making walking painful and difficult. 
 
He has since undergone two corrective orthopedic surgeries, one to repair a hip and another to repair knee muscles, as well as extensive physical therapy. Yukon now moves comfortably and enthusiastically! 

Watching Yukon play, you would never know he once lived in constant pain. He loves to run, play ball and go for walks. But he’s not always a dog of action; he is also a world-class napper! He loves his dog bed and has been seen sneaking onto the couch to cuddle.  

Yukon just wants to be close to his people and loves physical affection. He’ll lean against your legs, step on your feet and give love nudges when seeing you after a long absence (like returning from the next room). He does great with children, gets along well with other dogs, large and small, and even likes cats!  

He’s as sweet as they come!
