Yara, female Cane Corso/English Mastiff, 4 yrs 7 mths,
Hi there! My name is Yara, a 4 year old Mastiff mix. I am a very special lady, looking for a very special home. Were you wondering where my name came from? It means "little butterfly". I was very scared when I first came into the shelter, but with the help of staff and volunteers I have learned that people and things are not that scary - especially if they treats! I bond hard with my people, and sometimes that makes me guard them from strangers so I need a family that understands that and will work with me constantly on creating positive experiences and that uses positive reinforcement training methods with me. I also have shown that I have a bit of a fear of men.
When I warm up to you, I am a very playful girl that LOVES going on walks (sometimes I like to run too, do you think you can keep up with me?), plays tug-o-war like a champ, and is the BIGGEST cuddle bug you ever did see. My new family will be adult only, and I need a quiet household without a lot of traffic. Any canine pals already in the home will need to come in to meet me, but I would prefer to be the only animal in the home.
I AM IN A DIFFERENT PART OF THE SHELTER - ASK A STAFF MEMBER OR VOLUNTEER HOW TO MEET ME TODAY!
