Dog Of The Month: August 2019: Yoshi

Meet Yoshi

ID NUMBER: #188307
AGE:
7 1/2 YRS OLD
BREED: AMERICAN STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIER
SEX: MALE
WEIGHT: 44 LBS
LOCATION: IN FOSTER

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 muttstuffnc@hotmail.com. She will be happy to talk with you and set up a time to meet me.

Yoshi is Heartworm Positive, but has a generous sponsorship of $350 towards treatment from us here at the Friends Of Wake County Animal Center. Once treated, Yoshi will live a long, healthy life. Along with the sponsorship, our treatment coordinator will help guide you through treatment each step of the way, if needed. Learn more about our Heal A Heart Program here.

Yoshi is currently available for adoption through the Wake County Animal Center at 820 Beacon Lake Drive, Raleigh. The Center is open daily from 12 - 6 PM for meet and greets and adoptions. To inquire about an animal, please call 919 212 7387.

Meet Fergie

AGE:
9
BREED: HOUND
SEX: MALE

Hello everyone! My name if Fergie, and I am a spritely older gentleman looking for my forever couch. I love watching TV with my fellow humans (especially the part where I get belly rubs). I am overall a relaxed dog that may have a short spurt or energy or two throughout the day. My foster mom says I am house-trained and crate-trained and am very obedient with peanut butter. I may whine a bit if you leave me in the crate for too long though. I get along great with all my human and doggie friends. Don't you want to meet me today?

Meet Gazpacho

ID NUMBER: #191526
AGE:
1
BREED: DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR
SEX: MALE
WEIGHT: 7 LB
LOCATION: IN FOSTER

Um...hello, I'm Gazpacho. You can call me Pacho, but only if we get to know each other first. You seem really nice, and I would like to get to know you better so we can hang out, but you'll need to be patient with me. If you pet me and rub my ears we'll definitely be friends soon! I don't like loud noises or children, but I might like to have a gentle feline friend who will cuddle with me. I may not play with you at first but as soon as you leave me to my own devices I like to explore. My foster mom has lots of shiny earrings I like to play with. 

If you have a lot of love and patience in your heart, I will love you, too. My fur is soft and I love being pet for as long as you want to pet me. Will you be my forever cuddle buddy and ear scratcher? Let my foster mom know at lindsaycarbonell@gmail.com.
