Dog of the Month

 

 

Name:  Oprah and Aretha
Breed: American Bull Dog X Cattle Dog
Born:
 15th June 2016
Sex:
 Female
Adoption Fee:
$500.00  for both
BIN: 0000292198263
About:  These 2 sisters are absolutely dedicated to each other so we really need to find them a home together …  Normally we do not rehome siblings together but these 2 are just meant to be a team
These girls arrived at Yaps in November 2016  (yes they have been at Yaps for 9 months)
Oprah has been rehomed a couple of times but has jumped over the fence and we feel this is because she is looking for her sister Aretha… together they would be happy to lounge away the day with each other but still will require and area with a 1800 high fence to ensure they are kept safe and secure.
While at Yaps they have enjoyed numerous outings to Yaps events, showing just how well mannered they are.
 Lately they have been having outings to the beach which they absolutely love.
Please Please consider making these 2 gorgeous girls part of your family.
