Meet Yakima

Yakima is a sweet boy who has clearly never had much in the way of training. He's basically a 70 pound puppy who has not yet learned how to appropriately channel his endless amount of energy. Yakima would do best in a dog-experienced home with owners who can be patient with him and consistent with his training. German shepherd experience is not required for adoption, but would likely be helpful. Yakima's perfect match is an active person who wants to take him on lots of walks, runs, hikes, etc. This pup is gonna need lots of physical AND mental stimulation to keep him happy - this means lots of exercise but also lots of activities that will engage his mind. Yakima is still working on his manners and has been known to get a little jumpy and punchy (watch out for the paws!), but that's only because he's just so very happy to see you! If you'd like to meet this big pup, the first step is filling out an adoption application. Staff will review your application to ensure it's a good match before setting up a meet and greet with Yakima.

Hi, my name is Yakima! Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: Energetic/active, rowdy, bouncy, friendly

-Can Live with Kids: Due to my jumpy/mouthy behavior, I will need a home with kids ages 16+

-Can Live with Cats: No, I would likely be "too much" for cats

-Can Live with Dogs: Ideally no, but this may change pending further testing

-Can do Apartment Living: No, I am very high energy and all over the place! I would prefer a home with a secure fenced yard.

-Potty Trained: It appears so
-Bite History: No

-Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: Yes, 1 - 3 private lessons depending on adopter experience

-Energy Level: High high HIGH!!!

-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: Yes, a neuter/MC
