Name:  Loki

Breed: Wolfhound X
Born: 12th September 2018
Sex:  Male
Weight:  Approx 35kg
Adoption Fee:  $395.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About:  Loki is about as awesome as they come! You will fall in love with his big head and cheeky facial expressions.
He is super good natured around people and most other dogs and loves to be stood/sat next to his chosen humans.
Loki will bury his head into you for cuddles but also alert you to anything that he doesn’t think is right.
With his Wolfhound background he is always interested in rustles in bushes and you can see the hunt mode in him turn on.
Even when he is in this mode he is a good listener and with a few words is back by your side walking nicely on a lead.
He would make the perfect dog for a family where people are around most of the time and is perfect for weekend camps and adventures.

Name:  Oscar

Breed:  Cattle x Gt Dane
Born: 3rd January 2019
Sex:  Male
Weight:  Approx 30kg
Adoption Fee:  $350.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About:  Oscar has been described as the Mick Jagger of dogs by one of the Yaps staff members and I think it fits well!
His rugged good looks aren’t for everyone, but he is a handsome lad nonetheless.
He came to us as a pair but sadly was not able to be adopted together with the girl he came in with.
Since coming to us Oscar has settled in nicely but now thinks he owns the place – he is overdue his furever home.
He has different relationships with the staff at Yaps, bouncing and playing with most as a happy boy but also knows who the bosses are which is cute to see.
Oscar just needs a bit of normal consistency in his life and he will no doubt settle down into a family environment where he has his humans to play with but also an alpha figure to teach him the way of the family.

Name: Bobby

Breed:  Staffy X Kelpie
Born:  18th January 2021
Sex:  Male
Weight:  Approx 31kg
Adoption Fee:  $350.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About   Bobby, or BobbyBrown as he has become known by some of the volunteers, is a super happy and outgoing guy.
There is never a day he will not greet you with a smiling face and wagging tail.
For Bobby, life is one big playground. At Yaps he has mixed nicely with a female dog (LiLou) who he spends his days playing with in the yards.
He knows how to sit on command but does need a little bit more training to contain his explosion of excitement when he knows what is coming (for walks and food).
Bobby has lived with Cats in his past life with no issues and does enjoy a chilled out cuddle once he has become used to his human.
Bobby deserves a family that will embrace his happy go lucky attitude and give him the right guidance to be a loved member of their family.

Name: Marlon

Breed: Mastiff X
Born:  11th November 2018
Sex:  Male
Weight:  Approx 32kg
Adoption Fee:  $350.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About  Marlon is our Houdini.
Wherever Marlon goes from Yaps he wants to be the centre of attention.
This handsome big boy just loves to get pats and cuddles from anyone that will give him the time – and will make his own adventures to find someone if he is left alone too long.
He will flip on his back and wriggle next to you on the floor almost mimicking you if you lay down next to him… all he wants is love.
Marlon knows some basic commands such as sit, lay down and on your bed and knows to listen to his humans.
Marlon can get excited around other dogs and is learning to control his urges at Yaps, but he will need someone to spend time socialising him with other animals in the right setting.
Watching Houdini work out how to get out of some of our yards is very impressive and he is clearly a very smart dog – he really needs someone that will work with him to put those smarts to good use and give him the loving home he so deserves.
