Dog of the Month

 

Shelly

Breed:  German Shepherd X
Born: 9th October 2015
Sex:  Female
Adoption Fee:  $320.00
BIN: 0000292198263

Shelly has come to us from the Pound so we have no back ground information on her.
She can be a bit timid at first but does enjoy playing with the other dogs here at Yaps.
Shelly does need some training as she does tend to jump up trying to get as much attention as she can so someone who can just teach her what is expected of her will have a gorgeous loyal girl in their life.
She enjoys going for her daily walks and just hanging out with her Yaps mates.

About:  Our beautiful Noel came into Yaps care on December 29th 2018 along with with 7  4 week old puppies.
Noel raised her puppies who soon found homes once they were old enough
Just when we thought it was Noel’s turn to find a home to call her own we discovered she had heart worm so it was a full on treatment for 3 months but she has through like the little champ she is and now has a clear bill of health.
The gorgeous girl would be best suited in a family where she is the only canine as she is just so affectionate which it seems she has missed out on in her previous life, that she does not really want to share your affection and hey who can blame her after what she has been thru…

Name: Gypsy

Breed:  Mastiff X
Born: 22nd March 2016
Sex:  Female
Adoption Fee:  $300.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About:  Our Gypsy girl was out wandering the streets and was rescued by a lady and brought to Yaps on March 21 2018. 
It was soon obvious why she was out wandering as could do this amazing high jump!! so it was a completely fenced secure yard for this girl.
At some stage during her “high jump training” she injured her leg so after some rest time etc is did not get any better. An operation was performed to repair the Laterally Luxating Patella. Sadly the operation was not a success.she was putting no weight on the leg and we knew it was painful for her. After consulting with the vet it was decided the best thing to do for Gypsy was to amputate the leg as she was not using it anyway. The operation went very well and Gypsy is now pain free and enjoying life to the fullest.
She is a real people girl,loves spending time cuddling and just hanging out with you.  Gypsy can be a bit shy when you first meet her and especially with men but with patience and lots of TLC you will have the most loving girl ever.
Gypsy will still need to have a secure yard and be allowed to hang out inside when you are out, hopefully now with only 3 legs her “high jumping” days are restricted!!

About:  Zac is just your typical “teenage boy” full of beans and looking for a good time,
Some training for this guy will be a must so that he can learn what his new owner expects from him.
He is a happy outgoing guy and ready to take on the world!!
