“A week before Christmas his original owner left me a voice message saying, she finally recognized that it wasn’t fair for Yoda to be alone and not getting the attention or training he deserved.
She knew and trusted me enough to know that Yoda would be better off with my partner and me.
She dropped him at my apartment on Christmas Eve of 2017.
That was almost a year ago.”
“I continued to keep in touch with her regarding Yoda.
The situation in Pittsburgh was not ideal for his new family because the husband worked twelve hour days and his wife was not able to care for Yoda.
He ended up spending most of his days in a dog play pen.”
“I work in child care and saw her at the end of day pick up in the playground and talked to her almost every other day.
When he was five months old, she surrendered Yoda to her brother in Pittsburgh, because he wanted a dog, but his wife, who had just given birth did not want a dog, let alone a demanding puppy.”
“Yoda came to us.
He was owned by a woman and her ten year old son, who I met at a playground.
He was three months old and she told me, she didn’t think she and her son were going to keep him because it was harder to take care of a puppy than she was told.
As soon as I heard that I knew that I had to befriend her and either lend her a hand in taking care of him or convince her to give him to me.”
