Pet Adoption | Rockort-Fulton Humane Society: Yumi's looking for a family to grow up with!


We’re not really sure how Yumi (Yoo-mee) got her name, she really doesn’t have much in common with a Japanese archery bow from the 3rd century A.D.

Constructed from a sapling and exceptionally tall, the Samurai’s bow of choice was more than 2 meters tall, asymmetrical and used a hemp string. This puppy is made of sugar and spice and is really quite short. Her heritage is unknown, so her adult height is anyone’s guess, but she’s got itty-bitty paws if that helps.

And take a look at this face – the right & left side match pretty well, she’s symmetrical, don’t you agree? Yumi is learning all about leashes, but a string is all that is needed to take this pup on a walk around the neighborhood.

One common thing the puppy and the bow have is that they are both delicate and require a bit of maintenance. Wikipedia states that a well-cared for Yumi Bow can last many generations, while the usable life of a mistreated Yumi can be very short. The same goes for a pet; proper nutrition, veterinary care, education and training can extend the precious time that you get to spend with her.

To learn more about our Yumi, stop out to the shelter, she’d be happy to teach you about unconditional love, but not about archery.
