Dog Of The Month: August 2019: Yoshi

Meet Yoshi

ID NUMBER: #188307
7 1/2 YRS OLD

My name is Yoshi and I am an adult neutered male American Staffordshire Terrier mix. My foster mommy says that I am the best dog she has ever fostered. I am very quiet, I have wonderful manners, I'm housetrained, I walk perfect on the leash, I love to cuddle on the couch and I'm a low key fella. I'm a wonderful dog but I'm very shy and I take time to warm up to people. So to help me find a great home my foster mommy asked me to make a list of what I want in my new home. Number 1: I really need a home with another dog. I'm specifically looking for a home with a friendly, social, outgoing, non dominant neutered male dog to be friends with. I get along with everyone but I really want a bro to be pals with. Since I'm so timid and shy I pull my confidence from the dogs around me which is why I need a friend. I've been to day camp and playgroups at the shelter and have done well with all sized dogs big to extra small. Number 2: A low key home where I am an inside pet and not left alone outside. I would do best in a home without small kids because noise and fast movements can really scare me. Number 3: A patient loving person who will understand it takes me a bit to get settled and come out of my shell. Foster mommy has worked with me a lot and says that routines help me feel more secure and confident. Number 4: A fenced in yard so my new pal and me can play together. I love to run outside and roll in the grass but don't worry in less than 10 minutes I'll be patiently waiting at the back door to come in. I have Heartworms but they are totally treatable and Friends of Wake County Animal Center have generously donated $350 towards my treatment. I'm a quirky little fella but once you become my friend I'm very loving and sweet. If you think you might be the right home for me please contact my foster mommy at She will be happy to talk with you and set up a time to meet me.
