Love Me Tender, featuring Sierra on vocals

Granted, you can find plenty of singing dogs on YouTube. Granted, not all of them appear to be enjoying their performance. And granted, not all of them are ready for American Idol.

But Sierra, shown here with her rendition of “Love Me Tender,” is a dog that “really likes to sing” — especially this particular song, according to her owner, Adam Yamada-Hanff, a 21-year-old community college student. (That’s him on saxophone.)

Besides, she’s a Baltimore dog.

There are some songs Sierra doesn’t like (“Sierra is a Doggie Diva!” Adam says). But “Love Me Tender” is one of her favorites, and Adam’s.AdamRoger[1]

“The lyrics are very fitting for dogs,” he said.

Sierra is an English Shepherd, almost 2 years old. Adam is trying to figure out a way to use her singing talents to help out animal shelters and rescue groups. “A singing dog will definitely encourage some donations,” he said.

Adam grew up with a dog named Roger — that’s them to the left —  a stray that, though he died several years ago, Adam and his family still think about often.
