Meet YUMI - puppy of PERLA
Yumi and her siblings were originally spotted by a trapper (that ADR.org works with) around June 8th around San Bernardino County, CA.
At the beginning YUMI (name given by ADR.org) had three siblings but only YUMI made it out there with her mom PERLA (posted as well) . They could be trapped and safely brought to the LA vet. Just like her mom, she witnessed how one of her siblings was killed on the road in front of them and two sibblings were stolen by a person in front of their eyes.
At the end of June, Yumi and her mom Perla arrived on Orcas Island, WA and are now living with Founder of ADR.org until a matching and loving home is found that deserves YUMI, and will provide for the rest of her life a safe, caring and committed home.
Of course, she is still a puppy and behaves as such BUT her personality comes increasingly shining through, and she needs to cut the ties with her mom to GROW in her own personality by making her own experiences and - ideally- with another dog in the household.
On OI she is learning the basics such as having a good recall hearing her name, some commands as SIT but most important, some early socialization. “Come” may be the most valuable command to teach YUMI because it could realistically save her life. A puppy's curiosity can often draw them towards life-threatening situations - during these situations you want to trust that YUMI will respond to your voice more than anything else. It would then be your task to continue with this process.
YUMI is very smart, obedient and learns quickly based on reactions she gets from a person and equally from the rest of the dogs. Her learning curve is steep, and she absorbs it very well.
And then...yes...then there is the most liked activity: romping with other dogs, playing with her toys, and "getting into trouble.”
YUMI is a very bubbly little girl- but very obedient and a fast learner and still working on Potty training. But we are getting there!
ADR.org would like to see YUMI in a home with another dog and a fenced yard. She will not be getting the stimulation and enrichment she needs as a puppy in an apartment complex by herself.
YUMI is still working on Potty training. But we are getting there - after all she holds it through the night already and during the day, she alerts you with a high pitch bark that she needs to go.!
YUMI is crate trained and fully accepts her night sleep in the crate as well as some "Time-Out" during the day.
YUMI is spayed, microchipped and has all her necessary vaccinations until July 2024, incl., Distemper/Parvo, Leptospirosis and Rabies
So, if you think that you would like to give YUMI the home that she deserves, please send an email to ADR@animaldefenserescue.org and send photos and tell us a little bit about yourself.
ADR.org would like to talk to you first before sending you an application.
YUMI looks forward to getting mail from you.
