YoYo is coming to us from a rural shelter. He has lived outside all of his life and was tethered on a chain :( His owner passed away and a neighbor or relative was determined to find a better life for him. Despite living in those terrible conditions, he is very sweet and good with other dogs.

He is house trained and about medium-low energy. He has claimed his sleeping spot in his foster's home. YoYo also does very well on a leash and does well with the resident cat.

YoYo is goofy & loving, and he's constantly by your side when you're out watering the garden or doing chores around the house. He loves snuggling on the couch & hangs out on the bed when his foster is folding laundry but he chooses to sleep in the living room at night. He's very loyal and the more comfortable he gets, the more he lets out some barks! If he catches the scent of something, he stays very focused. He's very good on the leash

He is looking for a special adopter who will give him nothing but love and the respect he deserves for his golden years :)

The adoption fee for this dog is $475 and includes spay/neuter and microchip. Ask me about our many adoption benefits that include free exams, pet insurance, training and other discounts!

We are proud to partner with the following veterinarians who offer a free first exam for your animal, exclusively for HT adopters: Caring Hands Animal Hospital, Palisades Veterinary Clinic, Sunshine Animal Hospital and Clarendon Animal Care and all VCA Animal Hospitals.

Additionally, any VCA hospital will cover illnesses up to $250 at no cost to any Homeward Trails adopter.

We also provide free online workshop with a professional dog trainer at Fur-Get Me Not within the first 30 days of adopting - just for HT adopters in the Arlington/Alexandria/Falls Church/DC area. Start your new dog out on the right foot with this valuable, expert guidance FREE!

You can save animals like this one by becoming a foster! Fosters are like way stations between high kill shelters and forever homes. We need fosters so that we can save dogs before they are euthanized at the shelters. If you are interested in becoming a foster, please check out our information about fostering by visiting http://www.homewardtrails.org/foster-a-pet/dog-and-cat-foster-program

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

You will first be required to complete our Adoption Questionnaire (https://www.homewardtrails.org/adopt-a-pet/pet-adoption-forms/dog-adoption-questionnaire). Once received, a Homeward Trails rep will contact you via phone or e-mail. Please allow 72 hours for a response. If it seems you are a good fit for each other based on the info you provided, a phone interview will follow. If you are renting, we require proof that you are allowed to have a pet as well as any breed or size restrictions that may exist. If you have pets or did previously, we require your vet information and we will call them to verify that your pets are in good health, current on vaccines and spayed/neutered. We require that all pets in the home be spayed/neutered unless there are health reasons that can be verified with the vet. Homeward Trails' adoption fees range depending on type of animal, the originating shelter and the vetting the animal has received. Our adoption fees are set to allow us to cover our expenses as well as to help other animals in our program that require additional care. Our fees cover vetting costs, shelter fees, fuel for transport, copying and printing of contracts and paperwork, our website presence, food, boarding, behavioral training and additional medical care. It is important to note that while the animal you adopt may not require all of these things, many other animals in our system do. Thus, any "extra" money from adoption fees goes to help those animals who may require additional care. By adopting from Homeward Trails, you are not saving just one life, you are helping to save others as well.

More about this rescue

Homeward Trails seeks to find permanent adoptive homes in the Mid-Atlantic Region for dogs and cats from under resourced shelters or whose owners can no longer care for them. In so doing, we seek to reduce the rate of euthanasia of adoptable animals through the rescue and placement of homeless animals; to support proactive spay/neuter practices; to promote positive and ongoing behavioral training; and to educate the public about how to care for their animals in a humane way. Homeward Trails not only facilitates adoptions from local shelters, but also supports a large network of foster care providers who take homeless dogs and cats into their homes, care for them, rehabilitate them when needed, and prepare them for their permanent adoptive homes. Sadly, without our help, all of these adoptable animals would face almost certain euthanasia - usually within days or hours of our rescuing them. Each year we take in hundreds of wonderful animals who were left at shelters through no fault of their own. Many are puppies and kittens – innocent victims of irresponsible pet owners who don’t spay/neuter. Some are abandoned hunting dogs who served their owners well and were dumped in woods or left at shelters when they were no longer wanted. Others are house pets whose owners simply grew tired of caring for them or moved and did not take them along. And even more are animals that have been injured, abused and neglected. Whatever the reasons, these animals all deserve better. And once with Homeward Trails, they get better! Our Principles: 1. To always operate in the best interest of the animals we take into our program and to advocate for the proper care of those in shelters and in private homes; 2. To provide quality care for the animals we take in for as long as they are in our program and to provide ongoing support to our adopters; 3. To always maintain a manageable number of animals in our system whereby we can ensure proper medical care, behavioral training and housing for the animals; 4. To rescue the widest array of dogs and cats by avoiding general discrimination based on breed, age, and health; 5. To provide our shelter partners and their communities with resources that will result in the highest level of care for their animals, an increase in spay/neuter surgeries and a decrease in the abuse, neglect and abandonment of dogs and cats; 6. To treat our volunteers, adopters and partners with understanding, patience and support
