When a Puerto Rican rescue dog saw snow for the first time, he couldn’t contain his joy.
Yoda, a 2-year-old Chihuahua/Dachshund mix who grew up on the streets of Puerto Rico, had never known winters like the ones they get in Pennsylvania. Heather Bauer, his human, wasn’t sure how he’d react when she took him outside after a recent snowfall.
It turns out he absolutely adores it!
Heather told Fox News, “I assumed he’d be apprehensive when I let them out into the snow because he comes from such a hot area, but he just went crazy.” “He was ecstatic. I was tossing snowballs at him, and he was perplexed as to why they vanished as soon as they struck the ground.”
Just before Hurricane Maria, the formerly homeless dog was rescued by the Love of Satos animal rescue and transferred to Phoenix, Maryland.
Heather came across Yoda’s photo on the Animal Rescue Inc Facebook page, a Pennsylvania affiliate of Yoda’s rescuers, a month later. Heather reports that the tiny puppy is thriving in his new home and is constantly cuddling. “When I go home, he puts his little paws up on my legs as if to say, ‘Just embrace me, Mom,'” she explains. “He’s a fantastic kisser and lover.”
This is so cute!
