MEET >>>Yakima!! A#>> He/She is courtesy posted for Maricopa County Animal Care & Control.
Approximately >> 3 years old and looking for a furever home! YAKIMA a4315784 is a 3 year old boxer mix!! The dog lover in me LOVES this dog. But the (very amateur) photographer in me is driven crazy by this dog lol. That's because I cannot seem to get a clear picture of this adorable girl! Even when Yakima looks to be sitting still, her pictures turn out with a blur; she is just always moving to some degree lol. I'm sure everyone out there knows someone like that- a busy bee, on the go!
Yakima is such a fun girl. She honestly makes me smile. She loves to go on walks and run around the play yard. She mostly loves to be with her people though. Yup- Yakima is a lap dog! She will do whatever it takes to squeeze herself into your lap. Yakima is a very affectionate gal and loves to hand out free slobber kisses (and oh yes- they are SLOBBERY) lol. Yakima can't help herself- she is just so grateful to be spending time with you, and has so much love to give!
Yakima did ok with her dog eval, but was a bit over-stimulated. We tried her in the yard the other day with the dog she came in with, and she did very well. She seemed comfortable with him, but mostly just wanted to sniff around with him. We think Yakima would do best with another dog who gives her space and isn't too pushy or in-your-face... which seems at odds with Yakima's exuberant personality, but hey- sometimes opposites attract! Bring your dog in for an intro and we can help make sure it's a match!
For some reason, this girl isn't on too many people's radars, and she's been at the shelter over a month. Doesn't everyone love Boxers?! Yakima has such a joyful presence, it's impossible to feel down when you're with her. Trust me when I say that if you don't have Yakima in your life, you are missing out! PLEASE CALL 520-800-4633 TO MEET THIS BEAUTY! Ymyou will need my name Yakima
