Dog of the Month

Bella

Breed:   Bull Terrier x Staffy
Born: 28th July 2011
Sex: Female
Adoption Fee:  $200.00
BIN: 0000292198263

Bella originally came into Yaps for boarding but sadly was never picked up so she became a Yaps girl at the end of February.
Bella has not had the best life and we would dearly love for her to find a furever place where someone is home quite a bit who will spend time with her and just let her be your best friend and companion.  When you do have to go out she will need a secure place to just curl up and relax in.
Bella will need to be the only animal in the family so that she can just lap up your love.

Name:  Gypsy

Breed:  Mastiff X
Born: 22nd March 2016
Sex:  Female
Adoption Fee:  $300.00
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,
Gyspy 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.
