The ears, the fur, the smile- Yoda is all around adorable!
Yoda was originally adopted from PAWS NE about 5 years ago, but unfortunately was not doing well with his former owner’s new baby.
Yoda is a very loving, goofy dog, and he has his quirks! Although currently living with a dog and cat, Yoda would do best in a home where he is the only pet and can be fully focused on to help him remember to not bark at other dogs. Additionally, Yoda needs to be placed in a home without young children/babies around.
Yoda is an active dog who would benefit from an equally active owner, one who likes to go on hikes in Blue Hills and is okay with carrying around a fanny-pack full of yummy treats! Although a sweet boy overall, Yoda has some anxiety and does not like it when people hover over him or touch him in a certain way. Yoda is looking for someone who is patient and willing to respect his space when necessary!
Breed: Beagle mix
Age: 5 ½ years old
Weight: 26 pounds
Vaccinations: Up to date
BASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS:
Good with Dogs: Yes. Will bark at other dogs, but has potential to learn to not react to them (very food motivated). Currently living with a young, 17 lb dog. They get along well, but Yoda does not like to share toys or food. Generally does better with dogs about 10 lb +/- his weight, seems to get intimidated by dogs much larger than him if they are not familiar.
Good with Cats: No
Good with Kids: No
Adoption Fee: $350.00
Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog. The number of individual inquiries is overwhelming and we are finding it difficult to respond to each one. We cannot guarantee you will receive a timely response.
Paws New England is a rescue, not a shelter, and as such we do not have our dogs housed in one location - they are in foster homes both in New England and in our southern foster homes. If you’re interested in a specific dog, please complete a short online application and you will receive a reply within 48 hours so you can ask questions.
At present, if a dog is listed on our website, the dog is considered still available HOWEVER, may have applications that have come in before yours but it’s still too early to know if any are a good match; therefore we encourage you to apply.
NOTICE WITH REGARD TO LOCATION OF DOGS: Please note: Paws New England is a foster-based rescue. We do not have a brick and mortar building to house the dogs we rescue. We have found that dogs in foster homes are much more adoptable because they have been observed in a home setting. Dogs listed with Paws New England typically reside in various locations throughout the south (primarily Tennessee, Texas, and Arkansas) and New England (not necessarily in the state of Rhode Island). You will be notified by the adoption coordinator of the location of the dog you are interested in so you have the ability to decide whether to pursue adoption or not.
Dogs transported to New England are done so at a fee of $150.00 paid directly to the transporting company by Paws New England; no additional transport costs are responsibility of adopter. This fee is included in the adoption donation.
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 dog will help others in need.
All known information about the animal is listed above. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.
Paws New England abides by the dog importation regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, NH and RI.
