Dog for Adoption: Yu


What she lacks in size, Yu makes up for in heart. She has a huge one. This little tan dachshund is half the size of a big cat and certainly smaller than your average one. Indeed, there’s nothing average about Yu. Nine years old, she is a friend to all — dogs, cats, children, men and women. She’s a dog with class. No crazy kid stuff here. She’s quiet and social and loves to sit in laps. Yu would fit into any family, one with children, one without. She’d suit single people and senior citizens as well, or even make a great dog for a busy shop. You name it, Yu can handle it, because, like they say, size… just doesn’t matter.

Interested in Adopting Yu?

Please email ARK at tokyoark[at] or call 080-6146-3889 (English) or 080-6517-8913 (Japanese). Tokyo ARK is a nonprofit organization founded by Brit Elizabeth Oliver. It is dedicated to rescuing and rehoming abandoned animals. All animals are vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. Prospective new owners undergo a screening process.

The Japan Times supports stray and abandoned animals by publishing this photo box every Saturday in the Weekend/People section of the paper. The information is then archived here on the Angels with Fur site one week later, on the following Saturday.

    Hello. I live in Sasebo, Japan with my husband and 3 children (ages 5, 7, and 10). We are very much interested in adopting a dog – my children are especially fond of miniature daschunds. I’m not sure about transporting a dog from Tokyo to Sasebo though. Are there local shelters you can recommend? Thank you!

    I am looking for a puppy to adopt my son ten years.
    We had a dog in Brazil, over here because of the prices, yet we can not buy if you have someone who wants to give a puppy we are accepting.
    Hug everyone.
