Yogi is a typical happy cuddly puppy.
Yogi loves to play as much as he loves to snuggle for a nap. Mom is a smallish chocolate lab mix, and Dad is a 65lb lab mix
Being a puppy, he has never left to his own devices and is always supervised. He has his own exercise pen and bed where he stays if his foster is not home. Yogi is very quiet and sleeps all night in his exercise pen. When his foster gets up in the AM, he whines when he hears her voice because he’s ready for breakfast and playtime.
Yogi has not been around cats or kids, but being so young should be fine with both. He has had limited exposure to other dogs but is fine with them.
He rides fine in the car, but he is always crated in the car. He has shown no separation anxiety.
He is not housebroken but almost puppy-pad trained. He is an overall sweet puppy.
Yogi would love a home with a family who can love him and has the patience to continue training him. So he can be the best new addition to your family possible.

ATTENTION PUPPY ADOPTERS: You will be required to attend training/behavior classes with your new dog unless you are experienced dog owners and your adoption coordinator is comfortable with your experience. This requirement is for the benefit of you and your puppy so if you experience behavior issues you have a point of contact.
PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??
Please consider purchasing this book before adopting. Perfect Puppy in 7 Days - How to Start Your Puppy Off Right, Sophia Yin, DVM - it is an amazing book that we recommend very highly and have had amazing feedback on.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION -
Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
