Yogi Bear finds himself at WARS after being retired from racing. He is still pretty young with plenty of energy and a spring in his step
He is a sweet boy and who loves spending time with his my dog and human friends. He hasn’t seen much in life and coming to the shelter has opened his eyes to the world and he certainly loves to explore it. He is a quiet chap and can sometimes get overwhelmed in new places but he just needs to build some confidence and he will be fine. He is a tall boy and can be quick and strong if he wants to, but only if when he can be bothered, as really his favourite thing to do is relax and just chill.
Yogi is defiantly the most playful out of all of the greyhounds we have right now. He like all types of toys, balls, raggers, squeaky toys. He isn’t the type of dog who chases then retrieves, Rather he picks it up then runs away.
An ideal home for Yogi Bear would be with a family with children aged 14+. He could possibly live with another suitable dog however no cats or small furries.
His new family will need to understand that it may take him some time to settle in and that he has never been in a house before so some basic training will be beneficial. It will all be worth it in the end.
Yogi Bear is a greyhound that has previously been raced. Greyhounds themselves tend to be quiet and calm, enjoying the creature comforts of home mixed with a few walks here and there. Yogi is no different. He like most greyhounds is rather sensitive and docile so will need to be trained with a calm and light hand with plenty of praise over vocal correction.
