Dog of the Month

Termite

ON FOSTER

Breed:   Staffy X
Born: 17th March 2019
Sex:  Female
Adoption Fee:  $320.00
BIN: 0000292198263

Termite has been with us since she was about 8 weeks old and is now 9 months old so it is definitely time for this girl to find a home and family to call her own.
This little girl is a bit timid so we  would like to see her new owner come regularly to Yaps and take her for a walk and just spend time with her building up her confidence and trust.
Just give her a chance and you will find that Termite will be your most loving loyal friend and companion. Best suited to a home with no small children.

Name: Treacle 

Breed: Cattle Dog X
Born: 26th December 2019
Sex:  Female
Adoption Fee:  $395.00
BIN: 0000292198263

ON FOSTER

About:  When Treacle arrived at Yaps at about 1 week old, she had a badly damaged back leg, it has been caught up in wire. 
She was taken straight to the vets, given pain medication and antibiotics. A couple of weeks later it was back to the vet for a re check and at that time it was thought that she may loose her back leg but with lots of luck and and determination from this little girl her leg is still in tack.
She is never going to be your running partner or a dog that can leap through the air to catch balls but other then that she has plenty of get up and go.
Down the track if there has to be a joint fusion or whatever Yaps will be working with the Cairns Vet Clinic to have this sorted out.
She is a gorgeous girl and a ball of fun so come out and meet her.

About:  Pogo is such a character, still learning that the world and everyone in it is ok as he did not have the best start to life.
This boy has come so far and with the guidance of his new owner he will be your best mate ever.
He loves to play with other dogs, sometimes trying to be the boss, which usually does not work out for him!! so he just happily continues on playing.
He is such a loving boy and just really wants to spend time with you
Pogo does love to have his own chair to sit/lie in! you know just so he can be part of the family..
