Yogi has been adopted!

Say hello to Yogi, a simply adorable Saint Bernard who is looking for a great family to call his own. Yogi is full of love and needs a family to spread all of his love to!

Yogi made his way into the care of our parent All-Breed Rescue Group HART. We have opted to put Yogi through the Newf Friends foster program to best meet his needs as a giant breed. This lovable boy found himself homeless after his owner's unexpected passing - heartbreaking for everyone involved.

Yogi has known much love in his life and simply adores people and is a gentle, affectionate boy who will fit in well with a giant breed experienced family. He wants nothing more than to be a part of a family. His foster dad says he would make an excellent therapy dog as he is well mannered and gentle with everyone he meets.

Like all Saints, Yogi is best suited to a home with handlers who are confident, and have dog experience. He's a big boy and although very well mannered and lovable, he is not the dog for first time dog owners.

He is crate trained, quiet, well behaved in the house and such a pleasure to spend time with. A real gem! Yogi has excellent manners. All he wants is some loving!

Yogi lived with another giant breed male dog before coming to our care, and gets along well with many dogs. He does have some difficulty with certain male dogs, so we are looking for a home where Yogi will be the only dog or where he is with another calm, well socialized dog. He gets along very well with all of the female newfs in his foster home. He is not suited to living with sled dogs or other breeds who have very erect ears/high tail carriage.

He has received extensive training in our care and lots of opportunities to improve his doggie social skills. We have put him into lots of new situations and tested him and Yogi is doing great! What a good boy!

To be considered for adopting him please complete the Newf Friends adoption application (you can pretend it says Saint wherever you see Newf.) An adoption donation of $250 applies.

Yogi is neutered, UTD on vaccines. He is approximately 2 years old.

Yogi is being fostered in the Lindsay area. ** Because Yogi's needs are unique we WILL consider placing him in a home outside of our usual catchment area.**
