Yogi is an early riser. But if you have a doggie door, he's perfectly happy to let himself out. He's an outdoorsy kind of pup who likes to spend his days hanging outside or playing with other dogs, preferably female. He would also do well as the only pet. Yogi has a tendency to hoard all toys with him...but he's totally fine if another pup takes his toy, because he will always take it back, usually when they are not looking :) Being a young boy, Yogi has quite an abundance of energy. He will do best in a home where his people are willing to be consistent with his training, and can dedicate time to engage in enrichment activities to maintain his physical and mental health. He's not a fan of crating but does well with free run of the home. Yogi has so much pawtential, he is just waiting for the pyrfect family to bring out all his best qualities!

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102
Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.
