Brief Bio:

Meet Yoda! Yoda was rescued along with litter mates and other puppies when they were found as strays scavenging for food. Thankfully rescuers were able to rescue them and get them off the streets and to the vet for a full check up. Yoda is a sweet and happy pup who would love nothing more then to find a forever home. We are looking for a home that understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a puppy. Yoda is patiently waiting!


"Hi Melody! What an amazing month we've had with Yoda (is that really all it's been? We can't remember life before Yoda). We are head over heels. It has been the best experience watching him grow more confident in and trusting of his new surroundings. His average day consists of a morning run, midday walk or hike, late afternoon walk or beach romp, lots of rest in between, and of course nonstop adoration. Most outings involve at least a couple people wanting to pet him and/or take his picture because who doesn't love a puppy?; he remains on the cautious side with strangers but there is no lack of attention and in general he is getting better at tolerating his fans. He is a pretty amusing mix of cautious and curious with other dogs, warming especially quickly to dogs that are smaller than him. He does really well on play dates or at the beach when he is allowed time to investigate and play with other dogs verses just in passing.
Most impressively, Yoda is such a smart pup. In the month we've had him we have been able to teach him a myriad of tricks/obedience commands:sit, lay down (he definitely came equipped with these), stand from a laying position, stay, heel, high five, shake hands, jump, roll over, play dead, spin, take a bow, and army crawl! Yesterday we worked on holding a treat on his nose. He also sits and waits when we ask him "what do we do at the door?" to allow us to walk out/in first. He is VERY food motivated (hasn't met a treat he hasn't devoured) and it appears he will do anything for treats.
Last weekend we took him down to Big Sur for his first car camping experience. He hiked over seven miles no problem and did really well at camp (though after the fifth growl at who knows what in the middle of the night we were questioning our decision making). Can you tell he has become the center of our universe? We feel forever grateful to you and all those involved in saving him and getting Yoda to us; thank you a million times over. He is everything to us.- Brandon & Mya"
