Dog of the Month

Big Fella

Breed: American Staffy X
Born: 1st July 2011
Sex:  Male
Adoption Fee:  200.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About:  Hi I’m Big Fella!
People say I’m a big muscley dog, but I’m not as scary as I look. With the right boundaries in place with a confident owner, I am a gentle guy who loves toys and all
A ride in the back of the ute and a run on the beach are two of my favourite things.
Unfortunately I don’t put forward my best self at the kennel as it is a high stimulating environment, but take me out for a walk and I can show you my true laid back character.
I would love a home with me as an only pet so I can lavish all the attention.

Sex: Male
Adoption Fee:  $200.00 
BIN: 0000292198263

About:  Fred was a previous Yaps dog but sadly his owner has had to move away for work.
When Fred left Yaps 9 months ago he was trim taut and terrific!!! but in the last 9 months his size has somewhat expanded, so his new owner will have to be strict with this boys food and gentle exercise until he looses a bit more weight and becomes fitter.”
He is a great guy and worth that little bit extra effort to get him back into shape….
