From the Foster:

Yoko  is a SHY, shy girl who loves to be in your lap and as close to you as possible. In new places and around new faces she will look for a corner or couch to hide under so she needs to be introduced to things slowly, but once she gets more comfortable she won’t leave your side! She’s definitely a velcro dog once she gets to know you. She does very well with our resident dog who is a 70 lb pit mix and also loves cats! She loves playing with other animals when she has the chance but we've noticed if there are too many big doggies she can get overwhelmed.  Because she is so little and shy, she sometimes pees when she gets startled from a loud noise or sudden movement and I even hold her food bowl while she eats as the sounds scare her. She knows that she should go potty outside and has a 99% success rate when taken out often enough. She’s tiny so she needs to go out about every 2 hours. She does great in the kennel overnight and only whines when she hears we are awake - she always wants to see whats going on!

Her front left paw is deformed and this is something that we are still observing. Her mobility is great but after too long on the paw she begins to limp and carries it when she can - this is a birth defect and will eventually result in amputation or immobilization. Based on what we've seen from her, I think she would do much better in a home with another dog as our dog seems to have made her much more comfortable moving about, eating, going outside, etc., and she loves playing together. Also because of her foot, she will need a home that is aware and ready of the added responsibilities. Due to her shyness, she will need much more attention than just a normal puppy so please consider that when applying.
