THIS IS YAYA….a sweetheart of a pup, who was literally dying at the South Central Shelter.  Her rescue angel saw her and thought “this pup will not survive another day in this place…..” so she bailed her out and hoped to keep her, but that was not in the cards for this doll.  Yaya is 7 lbs (after gaining two pounds from when she left the shelter, emaciated and dehydrated), gray/tan/white, approximately 3 yr old.   Her rescue angel nursed her back to health, did a phenomenal job, and now Yaya has more energy than a troop of monkeys!! She loves to play and play some more…and cannot be contained because she is the female version of Houdini!  Yaya should definitely have a canine of her own to play with…for when she is not playing with her toys or you!  She is protective (of her human around strangers) and loving….especially of her toy balls!  She will do anything for her balls!  She fetches, but doesn’t always return them to you!  She is a joy to watch and to be with….especially when she is cuddling.  She definitely needs a home where she gets TRAINING and AFFECTION.  She needs some manners!!  She really has no boundaries and needs to learn some.  A home where she will get loving training would be the best for her!  She is good with respectful kids over 12 yrs old.  A pal for her to exercise and play with her is what Yaya needs!!  Is that you?

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
