Dog of the Month

Stephanie

Breed:   Pointer X Staffy
Born: 1st January 2016
Sex: Female
Adoption Fee:  $300.00 
BIN: 00002921982637

Stephanie arrived at Yaps almost a year ago… Christmas Eve to be exact along with her 9 tiny puppies.  Stephanie was a good Mumma and raised her puppies who have long since gone off to their new homes.
Once Steph was taken to the vets for her health check and vaccinations it was discovered that she had heart worm, which has been a slow process of treating. All treatment is finished and she is clear of all heart worm and waiting to go off to her very own furever family.
In the kennels Stephanie does not present herself to prospective owners very well as she gets so over excited and tends to carry on not as you would expect from a lady!!
However Steph has been out on foster with one of our volunteers and she is a completely different girl away from the kennels.  This is what her foster carer had to say about her…

A few words about our dear girl Stephanie who is a completely different soul outside of her YAPS environment. She tends to get along famously with the boy dogs but not so much with other girls. She loves to run around daft in the garden especially with a male friend. Walking along the beach is a firm favourite and she is extremely good on the lead. At home she likes to cosy into her bed after her dinner and you will be guaranteed a huge kiss and cuddle in the morning when she is ready to start the day.  You will not regret sharing your home with this lovely girl as she will give back more than she will ever ask for.

I am in foster care and not always at Yaps  if you would like to meet me please call the office 40576373 to arrange a rendezvous!! 

About: Good morning people… It is Taurus aka Runty here and today is your lucky day, as today I am ready for adoption yeah!!!
Now just a little bit about me. My Mum Daisy was rescued and taken to Yaps very much pregnant. Couple of weeks at Yaps and she had 11 precious babies, me being the cutest naturally!! but I was the runt and struggling to gain weight and put up with 10 siblings When the real hot weather came in that knocked me around big time so off I went to the vets where I stayed with one of the spunky vet nurses for a few days while they helped me re hydrate. It was back to Yaps where I went straight into foster care but I went down hill again and spent 24 hours at the vet again on a drip. Once again home to my foster carer and it has been a struggle but hey look at me now… fighting fit and healthy and some my even say a bit “chubby” 
I am a great help around the house and even helped take down the Christmas decorations. Seriously I have no idea how that tinsel got in my mouth…. 
Love Taurus aka Runty and actually there have been a few other aka’s from time to time but we will not go there about that now lol

BIN: 0000292198263

About:    Our dear Gypsy. All the staff have a real soft spot for her but she is seeking a very special person.
Our lovely girl has the abilities of a circus trapeze artist and will need a fully enclosed area to stay in while people aren’t home. Ideally she will need someone who is home a lot or able to take her with them. We think she would enjoy being a tradie dog! 
She will need a fair bit of training and can be a bit stubborn! But oh she is worth it all,
Gypsy loves to play and loves to snuggle up even more!
If you think you can give Gypsy what she needs please come down and have a chat with our lovely staff.
