About:  Gideon was a recent rescue from the Council Pound so we really do not know to much about him as of yet
He does love his walks and wants to explore every inch of the area and then it is off for a jaunt until he discovers the next area with amazing scents!!
We have not tried him with other dogs as of yet but he has not shown any aggression to the other dogs around him so hopefully in the next few days we can find him a Yaps “buddy”

About: Now here is a boy who just loves his soft bed  and snugly blanket!!!  tough Cattle Dog….
Tex is quite a chilled guy but will still need a home where he will get the exercise and stimulation. He will also need at least a 1800 high fence to keep him safe and secure.  
He has lived with another dog but is selective on his canine friends and definitely not a fan of entire male dogs.
Tex will be fine with older children but not a home with babies or young children as he has only experienced young children except briefly and was not comfortable with them at all.

About:  Maple has been in Yaps care for some time now and it is really time for her to find a home to call her own and a family to love her.
Unfortunately Maple does have heartworm but is under treatment and this treatment will continue at Yaps expense. We had started treatment but when Coviid hit medication became unavailable so treatment had to be abandoned. The medication is now available so we have had to start treatment all over again.
This girl is loving…funny with lots of charisma

Adoption Fee:  $350.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About:  Honey is another dog that has been in Yaps care for some time and also has heartworm which Yaps is treating and will continue to treat at Yaps expense. Honey was also under treatment for heartworm when the shortage of medication happened so her as well as Maple have had to start their treatment over again.
Honey would do best in a home where she is the only dog and with someone who is home quite a bit of the time as she loves company.
