Pet of the Week
APA!'s Yukon the senior dog is excited about finding a forever home
Austin Pets Alive! is home to a lot of furry friends ready to find a new home, but unfortunately there are many that have been in a shelter for far too long. That's why this weekend. APA! is hosting a very special "Hot Summer, Cool Seniors" adoption event for some of those elder dogs who are well-mannered, mature adults but still pups at heart.
As an example some of the awesome dogs still up for adoption, Yukon is the special focus for this week. Don't be fooled by his name, Yukon is a lot more teddy bear than grizzly.
Breed: Chow Chow mix
Adult Size: Medium
Age: 8 years, 3 months
Adoption donation: $0
Location: On site
Surprise fact: Yukon absolutely loves attention, often giving strangers a kiss through his kennel door and going crazy over belly rubs.
What APA! says about Yukon:
- Yukon might be okay with hanging around cats, but he would prefer to be the only dog in the household.
- Yukon has tested positive for heartworms, but it's a treatable condition and the cost is covered by APA! donors.
Why APA! says he deserves your love:
- Yukon is among the sweetest dogs around. If you want a new right-hand man then he is the dog you are looking for.
