My name is Beth and my companion’s name is Yuri. He is a two year old mix breed rescue. He is a remarkably happy, outgoing boy considering what he had been through. He was abandoned at about four weeks of age in a shopping cart in the blistering heat of a parking lot for an undisclosed amount of time. He was shy and afraid to eat. He now has a forever home with me, an affinity for frisbee and squeak toys, a yard to play in, and a creek to swim in. All of the pictures on my phone are of him. He loves cuddling people and pillows, diving underwater for rocks in the creek, and sitting in laps. He is the most loving dog I have ever met. Submitted by Beth C.
