Yukon, from Neglected to Well Loved

We first saw Yukon when he and his first owner moved in next door.He was badly mistreated and not cared for, he was never allowed into the house, did not have shelter nor access to water or food, when the owner threw pizza boxes with pizza crust onto his back porch, he would kick and beat the poor Dog for getting into that food, it did not take me long to start feeding Yukon and giving him water when his owner was gone. We even offered to Buy Yukon but were told No, several Months later we found out that Yukon was taken to the Humane Society,I went there and fibbed and said he was given to me and the Owners Brother didnt know, well when Yukon saw me,he was so excited and tried hard to jump a 7 ft tall gate to get to me, I was able to pay the fee for return to owner, Yukon was 3 1/2 years old. He crossed the Rainbow Bridge Nov. 7th 2016 at the age of 13 1/2 ,He was such a loving Dog and we miss him like Crazy.
