Dogs for Adoption

 

Name: Morgan

Breed:  Fox Terrier
Born:  1st July 2019
Sex: Male
Adoption Fee:  $495.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About:  Morgan is on the lookout for a home where someone is around most of the time as he does suffer from separation anxiety. It also seems he has never walked on a lead (which we are working on) or mixed with other dogs as he does not know how to play with them.
Patience… time and understanding is what Morgan will need from his new owner.

Born:  18th June 2020
Sex: Male
Adoption Fee:  $350.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About:  This boy was a rescue from the local Pound so we have no background info on him.
He has mixed nicely with another girl that also came from the Pound but at this stage have not tried him with other dogs.

Sex: Male
Adoption Fee:  $350.00
BIN: 0000292198263

This little guy is very protective of the person he claims as his so he needs a home where there are no children and just someone who is looking for a companion to spend time with.

Name: Rita

Breed:  Staffy
Born:  15th June 2020
Sex:  Female
Adoption Fee:  $350.00
BIN: 0000292198263 

About:  Rita is a mini professional cuddler
She has nothing but love to give and receive from her humans – she will flop on the floor belly up and lap up all the love and attention she can get. 
At only 17kg Rita is the perfect smaller size family dog who doesn’t mind being picked up and cuddled –  some staff have been caught rocking her like a baby in their arms which she accepts with closed eyes and tongue out smiles. 
Rita is good with most other dogs and becomes much more active and playful when left with her doggy friends. Playful wrestling usually results in submitting behaviour with the bigger dogs. 
This girl came to YAPS a quiet girl but has become more vocal as she has settled and she knows how to alert people to danger. She would make a perfect inside family dog who will keep her family and home protected.

Breed:  American Staffy X
Born:  9th June 2013
Sex:  Male
Adoption Fee:  $150.00
BIN: 0000292198263 

About:  Gus is a big boy who just needs a Dad.
He is affectionally known as ‘Gus Bus’ or ‘GB” who is a big boy that sometimes forgets his size.
Gus came to YAPS a whopping 60+ Kg but has now lost almost 10Kg. With that weight loss we have seen a completely different boy! 
Once Gus bonds with you he loves to show his excitement when you see him each day with a little front paws bouncing dance and a smiling face.
He will bulldoze his big head into your arms to show his love and to get cuddles.   
This boy is most at home lazing about indoors or outdoors and prefers to walk anywhere over running. He would make a perfect workshop companion or for a tradesperson looking for a workmate where he can just hang out with his humans.
Gus has been spending time at YAPS with a female Bull Arab and they get along with no issues at all.

About: Archie’s first visit to Yaps was when someone found him out wandering, finally after a few days the owner came to collect but guess he must of enjoyed his time at Yaps because within a few days he was back!
We have done everything we could to advise the owner he was back at Yaps including a staff member going around and leaving a note saying where he was. After doing his stray time with Yaps he was vaccinated and desexed and is now on the lookout for a new family who are going to cherish him and let him be part of the family as he definitely loves to be with his humans.

Adoption Fee:  350.00

About:  Amelia is a professional cuddler.
Sadly Ameila came to YAPS as a quiet and timid girl who did not know love.
Now that she has spent time around the loving staff and carers she has become a completely different girl!
Once you win her trust, Amelia will give you nothing but love and happiness.
Her favourite thing is to get belly rubs and she will skid on her side, belly up, in excitement of receiving the next one from you.
She is most at home just relaxing inside with her chosen humans, but also loves long walks and the occasional zoomie.
Amelia is a good listener but needs a home where she is the only dog so she can lap up all of the attention she deserves.
She will make the perfect loyal, loving cuddle companion.
