Uki is a super silly canine companion who is begging to be your next cuddle buddy - and he's a jack of all trades! He'll show you all his favorite toys and challenge you to a tug of war battle. He's up for a walk anytime you want, or he'll chill out for snuggles and snacks with a good movie. As a very friendly, happy boy, he loves everyone.

This gentle, playful pup loves to be outside smelling the roses, but he's also a window watcher. He can spot a bird or squirrel from a mile away, and he tilts his head from side to side watching their funny antics. This sharp boy learns quickly and really wants to please. He does well when left home alone in his pen, sleeping and playing by himself.

Uki is recovering from being hit by a car. His leg and pelvic fractures are healing nicely, and he currently uses a sling and a wheelchair to get around. How much he will recover his mobility isn't certain, but he is making progress. He exercises his back legs every day, and walks short distances unassisted. On his walks, he shows interest in other dogs, and gets along well with his 12-year-old foster kid companion, and doggie housemate. He's also been friendly to the two cats in his foster home. He's even begun to swim freely with his life jacket.

This sweet, affectionate boy hopes for an active single-story home with a fenced yard where he can exercise and play outside with his human. Uki is a loyal, happy, wonderful super-dog! Come meet him, gaze into his hypnotic eyes, and see for yourself!
