Yogi is an eight-year-old Lab mix. He is extremely affectionate to the right person, generally preferring women to men, though he did learn to bond with his foster dad. However, he has some fear issues we are working on, and it would always be best for him to have slow introductions when meeting new people. Once he trusts you, he will be the most loyal dog and love you to the moon and back!
Because of his anxiety, Yogi must have a fenced yard. He would also prefer female dogs, if there are dogs in the home. Children should be older and dog-savvy.
Despite his quirkiness, we can attest to Yogi's sweet personality when given the right environment to thrive in! He is very focused on his human, wanting so badly to love and please this special person. When you come home, he is ever ready to greet you with a toy or a TV remote--no, he doesn't destroy them!
Please contact us if you would like to learn more about Yogi! We have a behavior modification plan worked out for his continued training and will provide post-adoption support.
Yogi is being fostered in the Twin Cities metro area, and his adoption fee is $290.
