Yuzu and his brother Hanyu were recently abandoned near the shelter on the other side of the highway and for a couple of days, they wandered there, disoriented, in search of food, water, and shelter.
Hanyu was immediately friendly and eagerly jumped into the arms of our caretaker, but it took a bit more effort to gain the trust of the slightly shyer Yuzu. Eventually, though, we succeeded. Both of them have since opened up to us.
Yuzu is still a bit reserved with unfamiliar people, but once he warms up to someone, he becomes a playful and lively little fellow. He integrates well into our large group of dogs and has no hesitations about interacting with the “big guys”.
Yuzu is probably around 2 to 3 years old (born about 2021) , weighing 7-8kg, and has meanwhile been neutered. It’s very much likely the two have lived in a home before.
Hanyu has already been adopted, but Yuzu is still looking for a loving home. Due to his initially shy behavior, Yuzu would thrive in a new home where he won’t be overwhelmed by stimuli at first.
Having a playmate, especially a female dog, would surely make him happy.
If you’re looking for a new addition to your family, consider adopting Yuzu. He may be a bit timid at first, but with love and a little patience, he will blossom into a wonderful companion.
