Meet Yoda


Yoda is one super cool lil dude. He’s low key, happy to hang on the couch or chomp away on a yummy bone. He’s such a fun dog to have around.

There is no denying his cuteness. His personality backs up those good looks. He is a low key wingman, ready for any adventure from the comfort of the couch or a road trip. He’s mostly a lounger and enjoys time in the sun. If you’re looking for a hiking buddy, forget it, unless you want to plop him in a stroller. He’s happy to meet every person, young or old, big or small. He lights up when he gets to meet new people. In his original home, Yoda lived with a toddler and has really enjoyed meeting kids.  He’s well behaved in the house and generally does not bother anything that isn’t for a dog. He likes to be close but he does not demand attention or incessant petting. He’s pretty content to snuggle up against you (or behind you on top of the couch!) and snore away while you do your thing. He is such a good, lil guy and he’s going to make a family so happy.

As for other dogs, it would be best if he were the only one. He can meet other dogs and hang out with them yet he can be possessive of people, bones, food items. Yoda has been around a variety of dogs in his foster home and has not done well with most of them. Outside of the house he enjoys romping around with friendly females.

He sees cats as something to chase and capture. No cats for him!

Yoda has the grooming needs typical of other English bulldogs, meaning regular cleaning of his face folds and regular ear cleaning.

Yoda joined ABR last year when his family couldn’t care for his special need. He regurgitated almost every meal and was steadily losing weight. Yoda had surgery in October 2022 to repair a couple things which improved everything for him. The surgery was a great success. Yoda now lives a normal life with one, minor adjustment: he is hand fed “meatballs” while standing on his hind legs. He’s a pro at eating this way and as long as you stick with that, he does not regurgitate at all. His new family should be aware of the condition megaesophagus specifically for understanding the importance for continuing to feed him in that upright position. Because of the surgery, Yoda does not need any medications nor to be fed in a special chair.
