Facts about Yogi

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
YOGI is a 4 year old red and white Chi mix male who is smarter than the average bear and most of the other dogs at his foster home. He is small, weighing in at 7.4 pounds, and would fit nicely in a pic-a-nic basket or a comfy dog bed in his new home. His foster says that Yogi isn't too keen on being picked up and carried around so he may not be good in a home with smaller children who may try to pick him up. If he feels threatened, he may nip. The only time he likes to be held is when he must leave the house for something, and then he wants that security. When at home, he has a very independent personality. He will sleep snuggled up against his foster's back or may lay up against a leg or nap at or on her feet, but he is not a lap dog. He gets along with dogs and cats, but he doesn't really play with them. He will act like he wants to play, but is too scared to join in, perhaps because of his small size. He's a great dog, just not a big fan of cuddling. He has been vetted, vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Yogi if it means he will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help our 501(c)3 non-profit rescue to cover the cost of the veterinary care he has received.
