His name is YOAV! (Yo-av) and he is freaking amazing. He was born to Yoga and Bartley on February 12, 2015.

. He has four other siblings. 3 brothers and 1 sister. The males are Yankee, Yonder, Yamal, and of course Yoav. The female is Yucca. Yoav looks almost identical to his mom.
I received Yoav on April 17, 2015. He was flown in with two other puppies on Delta Cargo. I was unable to pick him up from the airport but my mom and sister went for me.

His kennel started out too big and would relieve in the kennel. Luckily he grew out of that. Overall he was pretty easy to housebreak. Besides the fact he would drizzle if you didn't take him out fast enough.
When he was little he was also terrified of stairs. He would refuse to go down them. Eventually he would go down the cement stairs but if there were more than 4 stairs he would refuse to walk. He was very scared of things when he was a baby puppy, but has since grew out of most of them.
When I first got him I was still finishing my semester at college, so I was gone for two weeks before I was able to come and raise him. My mom and sister were willing to help me out a lot during the summer, and also those two weeks I was in school.
More pictures and information to come about the last 8 months!
But until then here is a cute baby picture of Yoav!
