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.

Born:  15th June 2016

Adoption Fee:  $300.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About:  Hi everyone my name is Trixie and my life has never been that great but a few months ago it became much worse. I was hit by a car and left laying on the side of the road in agony for a couple of days.
Finally I was rescued by an angel named Lyn who took me to the vets. They said my back leg was such a mess it had to be amputated.
Yaps agreed to take me on so here I am looking for someone to love and cherish me.
I might only now have 3 legs but man I can still move and shake it!!
I think I might be a Keplie X but am only a small girl..
Trixie has happyily played with the other dogs at Yaps but in a home situation she thrieves on being the centre of attention and getting all the love ( and this is probably because she has never experience attention and love in her life previously) so she is best suited to a home where she is the only dog.
