Update- 12/15- I've been with my foster mommy now for about a month and boy, have I made a lot of progress! I sleep in my very own crate now, that seems to have helped a lot with some of my behavior. My foster mommy says that she's the boss- no if's, and's or fluffybutt's about it! My potty habits have improved and I'm learning how to communicate! Keep checking back for more updates!
SWM ISO quiet home. Hi, I'm Yogi! My foster mommy calls me Yog's sometimes, I think that's funny. She has all sorts of cute little names for a cute little guy like me.
I've recently come back into rescue after being in my last home for almost 5 years. I really loved my dad, but he passed away a while back. I was really sad and miss him a lot. I started acting out and having some health issues, so I found my way back in rescue. Being in a different environment has helped a lot.
My foster mommy is having trouble interpreting my communication skills, but we're learning more about each other every day. I told her I don't like to be picked up and she told me she doesn't want me to sleep on the big bed. See, we compromise.
She also says I need a strict routine so that my potty habits become more predictable. One way that has helped me learn that I go potty outside (instead of inside) is by sleeping in my crate at night. I wasn't very happy about it at first, but now it's becoming part of my routine. I can tell my foster mommy when I need to go potty and that's helping a lot.
You should know that as a senior pooch, I have had some health issues. I had a large wart removed from my head right before Thanksgiving. My nickname right now is Frankenstein, but the stitches will be removed soon and the hair is already growing back. I also am hard of hearing. Sometimes I don't hear my foster brother tell me I'm too close to him, but I'm learning to look where I walk first.
I also had some teeth pulled. A lot of teeth pulled. The vet thinks I must have been given a lot of people thoughout my lifetime. Which is probably true, because I try to get my foster mommy's food all the time.
I'm a VERY smart boy who's learning new things every day. I'm funny, goofy and little. Since I have some of these senior issues, I try to stay away from kids. So a quiet home would be best for me. I'm ok with other dogs, but we don't know about cats.
I love running around my foster mommy's fenced yard and I'm learning how to walk on a leash again- I tend to pull a lot and that makes me cough sometimes.
Do you know someone who would open their heart to a senior pup like me? Right now I'm up for sponsorship until the vet clears me for adoption. I can be a bit cranky and persnickety sometimes, but hey, I'm an old fella, I think I've earned the right to be that way.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email my foster mommy, Deborah: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whenever possible Eskie Rescuers United tries to adopt out its dogs locally (or at least to adopters in adjoining states to where I'm being fostered). Please note that ERU processes LOCAL adoption applications before considering those from out of state. If I'm not local to you, as explained above, and you really have your heart set on me, you will have to make special arrangements so ERU can get me to you safely (for example, flying me to you at your own expense, or paying a transport group to drive me to you). Note: We may ask that you to make a donation to cover transport costs if the distance is great and we have trouble finding transport drivers.There is an adoption fee required; and, please be aware, Eskie Rescuers United will not adopt out its dogs as outdoor dogs.
