A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away………Jedi Knight Yoda appeared in the parking lot of a shelter looking for new recruits.  The force is strong with him, and kept him safe until the staff found him and brought him inside.  The Jedi did not have a good dental plan, so Yoda was left with only 4 teeth after his dental appointment.  (He came into the shelter with severe dental disease.)

Now he enjoys his well-earned retirement in his ODH home.  In keeping with his training, Yoda bravely defends his new home and family against all threats.  At 7 pounds, he is the smallest creature in the house, but certainly not a pushover.  Once everything is secure, Yoda prefers to spend his time sleeping next to a human while under a pile of blankets.

Addendum:  Those who lack understanding of the Jedi, reported that he is supposed to be a french bulldog/chihuahua mix, and supposed to be 14 years old.   Since his mouth was fixed up he’s been healthy but we’ve treated his “dry eye” and he’s had a serious corneal ulcer which required much treatment by the specialist.
