This people-oriented dog adores affection will quickly become your devoted best friend. When she's not busy soaking up love, Yo Yo enjoys playing with stuffed toys and balls. She is very intelligent and enjoys learning new tricks.

Born in 2008, Yo Yo also appreciates her cozy bed and fleece blanket. She came to the Sanctuary from a Salt Lake City shelter. Although wonderful with people, Yo Yo isn't great with other animals, and needs a home where she can be the only pampered princess.

She has neck pain, so she needs to wear a harness on walks and take medication. We do daily neck stretches with her that are very simple.

Yo Yo would be so grateful for a person of her very own to love. Could you be the one this brown-eyed girl has been waiting to meet?

Yo Yo is part of our Single Pets* program! That means that she is eligible for a free flight home and waived adoption fee!

*Single pets do best as the only dog or cat in the home.
