Physical Description: Yogi Bear has short tan fur, with a pink nose; and white markings including on his chest and paws, and a streakdown his face. His sweet golden eyes look at you with such trust and love.
Personality: Affectionate, energetic, and happy, Yogi Bear is a playful young guy. He is crate trained and potty trained, and really likes car rides. Since coming into foster care, Yogi has spent a good amount of his time recovering from a previous injury. But he has had his foster parents keep him company and a fenced yard. So, although he is much better now, he still has some restricted activity; so we are looking for a home where someone is there a good part of the day, a fenced yard, and another dog to hang out with (he's not ready to play yet). Yogi loves to play with toys, especially chew toys. He enjoys napping and settles well to rest. Yogi is especially enthusiastic at mealtimes and runs to his crate to wait for his serving. When trying new foods that he really likes, his forehead wrinkles and moves back and forth!
History: Yogi came to IAR from a local shelter.

Health Information: Yogi Bear is neutered, microchipped, and current on vaccinations. Yogi was rescued with a leg fracture, which turned out to be an avulsion fracture. He has received conservative treatment including laser therapy, and is no longer lame. The vet recommends that he avoid rough play and agility, at least until the fracture is one year old, which would be approximately January 2018. He can walk and do most normal activities. His avulsion fracture is aligned based on the most recent imaging. And the vet says he should not need any further treatment.
IAR Sponsored Training: IAR subsidizes post-adoption professional training with Jane Marshall (www.cheerydogs.com) to encourage a life-long and successful bond between the dog and the adopter. Group classes for puppies and adult dogs are provided at a substantial discount to IAR adopters.
