Arrival Story:
I visited the shelter one morning and was admiring a cute little dog in one cell, but heard this little guy behind me just begging for my attention. He was soaking wet, having just had his area washed down, and looked pretty raggedy. But he was already the favorite of one of the volunteers, who came to take him out and brush him. I followed and watched how this little guy charmed everyone who came by. Had to have him.

Bio:
Yogi was found in a schoolyard. Before I adopted him, he had been adopted and brought back, ostensibly because the people were "allergic." I think they were allergic to his behavior! He was extremely squirrelly for a long time — jumped at shadows, barked too much, was underfoot all the time, had "accidents" for no apparent reason, and was very weird and moody at night, especially being possessive about chewy things — but we accepted him into our family, took him to training as a family, and gradually he has settled into our lives. Even Bungee (the cat) likes him now (see photo). He's proven to be very smart (when he wants to be) and quickly learned sit, stay, lie down, shake (both paws), sit up, roll over, play dead, leave it, take it (his favorite), and give me a hug (my favorite).
