Yag is full of happy energy and will keep you smiling all day long! He arrived at Animatch in July and we soon realized that Yag could use some work before finding him a home. *FIC, once again, came to the rescue. Thanks to Virginie Forest and all her students who have been working diligently with Yag for the past few months, he is ready to take the next step.
Yag is all terrier, all of the time. He needs to feel as though he is working his mind and body; in other words, no couch potatoes. The size of your house or yard is far less important to dogs than what happens in it. He is a very intelligent, spunky, and focused little dog that loves to learn and he is proving to be a star pupil!
Whoever adopts Yag cannot just pick him up at *FIC and walk out the door expecting that all will be perfect. You must continue to reinforce all that he has learned on a daily basis and don’t forget to make it fun for both of you.
First and foremost, he absolutely requires an experienced guardian – one who works with positive reinforcement. His family needs to be active and include him in many of their activities. Since he does have some resource guarding issues when it comes to food and toys with other dogs, he would thrive as your one and only. However, you can go for walks in the neighbourhood and he will not show any leash reactivity. Insofar as children are concerned, older ones (over 12) would be best.
If you are ready to dedicate your time, affection, and patience to a happy future, both you and Yag can make some beautiful memories. He is so ready to feel your love. If you would like to adopt this terrier boy, please fill in the Application Form and ask for Yag.
Please note that due the volume of applications, we are unable to respond to all applicants and ONLY those being considered will be contacted. We thank you for your understanding. The adoption application link is posted below and the adoption process is outlined on the website. Animatch asks that you read the Adoptee’s bio in its entirety before applying to ensure you meet the requirements for the dog.
