I've been adopted!
This pet is no longer available
Yoshi is an adorable 1 yr old Japanese Spitz, unfortunately he has been undiagnosed until recently as being deaf (most likely from birth) and through no fault of his own has been changing hands 3 times before coming into our loving care from of our dedicated volunteer.
Yoshi’s fur was densely matted right to his skin that the groomer could not brush it out so the humane thing was to shave him.
Although he was upset and irritated at first he feels much better and his coat is growing back beautifully.
Don’t let the fact he is hearing impaired put you off adopting this sweetheart – this little guy is a pocket rocket and just like his namesake he boing boings around the yard doing zoomies with his chosen toy.
Owning a deaf dog is great – he won’t judge you for your taste in music or if you like to bop away and sing badly to something like Tay Tay or even the Bee Gee’s. He is looking for his ‘Mario’, a best mate to hang around with and be by your side on all your adventures. You will need to learn doggy sign language and have a clear routine, he thrives on consistency.
Yoshi is a very energetic boy and loves other dogs, a younger play mate that could run and play with him would be ideal. He loves running around the backyard and really enjoys his walks. He walks well on the lead, he is a little excited and pulls slightly for the first few minutes but soon settles into a lovely walk, he thinks Sniffaries are the best. He checks all the mail posts and leaves his reply (frequently). When meeting other dogs out on his walks Yoshi is polite and well mannered. He must never be let off leash without being in an enclosed area as he will not hear you call him.
Yoshi is a very intelligent boy and with consistent training he will make a perfect companion for any family. Due to past experiences, he is more suited to older children who will respect his space and learn to give him visual commands. He prefers to be around his people so someone retired or working from home would be ideal but he is fine if left alone for a short period of time as long as he has some toys to play with or a bone to chew on.
Yoshi is going well with his crate training and settles, as he is still learning that some things are not to be chewed on it is best to continue with this until he matures (he likes socks).
Yoshi loves his humans and will form a very close bond with you, he is cat friendly although this needs careful introduction as he will not hear verbal warnings – a dog savvy cat is best.
Due to Yoshi’s breed his double coated fur will need professional grooming every 6-8 weeks and regular weekly brushing to avoid it’s getting matted which was the condition he was in previously. He was very good for the groomer and likes having a brush, he especially likes rubbing his back under things and getting a good bum scritch. He is fun to be around and will be the absolute best companion.
Yoshi is currently fed with Royal Canin dry food and mixture of MyDog wet food, homemade chicken breast or beef mince cooked with vegetables, rice/pasta & cheese.
Yoshi is desexed, microchipped and up to date with his vaccination.
