Yankee is a lovely walker on a loose lead but quite anxious and quite scared of strangers especially men. He needs special people who will take the time to earn his trust and understands he needs special treatment. He needs walking in quiet areas. He does not like open spaces and can be very reactive to strangers.
Yankee is a sweet affectionate but strong dog who loves to be around people he knows. He is better with women than men and needs time to trust men. He is wary of hats and sunglasses. Yankee walks on loose lead most of the time and does not react to cars, other dogs, trucks or whipper snippers. He loves being patted and belly rubs and knows sit. He loves car rides and feels safe inside a car. He is receiving training for confidence building and people reactivity. He needs a family with patience to make him more comfortable with the outside world. He does not cope well in the stressy shelter environment. He has a smooth coat and weighs 30.5kg.
Garden: Needs a home that has more space as well as a garden for exercise and regular walks outside.
Suit Part Time Worker: Copes alone for short periods, with training possibly longer but presently does need someone home part of the time
Needs Rescue Experience
He comes desexed, C5 vaccinated, heartworm free and microchipped. Also included for the love and health of our dogs is a free Health and Wellness Voucher with our DR Vet.
DoggieRescue is a charitable organisation and as such we rely very much on volunteers to manage our adoptions. We answer initial adoption enquiries by email or phone and then arrange an appointment for you to meet some of our rescue dogs.
At DoggieRescue we believe our dogs deserve to find that special someone who will love them and look after them forever. We know that there are homes out there that are willing to accommodate one more little member of the family and dedicate time to their well being.
