Youssef, 14, is funny and helpful. He likes listening to music (especially Queen), and you can find him singing along in the car. Youssef loves to play video games, but he also enjoys cooking, playing basketball and playing with Magic and Pokémon cards. Youssef enjoys being read to, especially the Harry Potter series. Youssef hasn't lived with pets before, but he does like dogs.

Youssef responds well to one-on-one attention and positive reinforcement. He would do best in a structured environment with routine and a home with no children or with much younger children. Youssef would need a home that can best support his ongoing needs.
