Office Dog Yoshi

Meet Yoshi, the latest addition to our office dog team.

2-year-old Labrador cross breed Yoshi has been with mum Gem and her family since she was just 8 weeks old.

We caught up with Gem to find out a little more about gentle giant, Yoshi.

Why this breed –

‘Yoshi is my fourth lab/lab cross, rescue dog. I have a huge love of the breed.’

Where did you get Yoshi from?

‘Yoshi’s mum was left at Woodgreen Animal Shelter in Godmanchester. As she was pregnant, mum was sent straight to a foster home, where she later gave birth to her litter of 8 beautiful pups on Christmas day 2016.’

‘Yoshi’s favourite human is definitely my son Reuben, who turned 3 in December. They are best friends and have grown up together. They quite often get into mischief together.’

Favourite Food – 


Favourite Toy –

‘Buffalo bone.’

Favourite activity – 

‘Digging & burying things she has found in the garden.’

Funny story –

‘Yoshi has a love of socks! Chewing them, hiding them and throwing them around the room.  She has figured out how to open the tumble dryer and quite often will pinch them directly from there.’

Funny habit –

‘Most of the time Yoshi thinks she is a cat.  We have two cats and she has grown up copying everything they do, including trying to sit along the top of the sofa.  At 46kg this isn’t as easy as when she was a young pup!’

The Buddies team where super excited to add Yoshi to the office dog rota. Yoshi has been very well behaved during her shifts and is always on hand to provide cuddles and soggy toys.
