All about Yukon
This sweet one-year-old fella is full of puppy energy and looking for a family who has the time and energy to give him the active, happy, loving home he needs. He just arrived in foster care and we will be assessing him over the coming days to determine his needs.

His foster parents report that he is a very sweet boy, a real love. 

Yukon has completed obedience training and knows his basic commands.   Like many young male Newfs, he sometimes forgets his manners and can become quite boisterous.  An owner who has good handling skills, and the time to commit to further training will be best for him.   He needs some work on general arousal control when he is excited, and following instructions even when he'd rather not! A calm handler who can use a Nothing in Life is Free training strategy will be successful with this sweet young boy. 

Yukon gets along with other dogs and could join a home with a well-mannered four-footed pal. 

Health-wise, Yukon has some allergy issues resulting in itchy feet and hot spots.  We are working to address this. He is also being treated for a nasty UTI which will hopefully be resolved soon.

More details to come as we get to know him.
