Yankee continues to do great. He is such a loving dog that wants to please you with his love. Yankee is finally able to live a full wonderful life being able to run and play with other dogs. Yankee is not your typical 5 year old, he acts 2 1/2 - 3. He has a lot of energy and needs a dog that loves to run and play with him. He met his foster brother Wally the other and did great. Even though they are both 5 you would not know it. He just loved running and playing with Wally and will soon have more dogs to play with. He does play well with my female dog who is about half his size inside the house and does great with her.
Yankee will still have an accident once in a while in the house but I let him out often and he does well. He does great while he is in the crate when I'm not home. He hasn't had any accidents in the crate. Yankee met one of my cats the other day who was sick and all he wanted to do was take care of it. I haven't introduced him to my other cat so I'm not sure yet how he does with an active cat. I have to say to see the loving side of Yankee with a cat he never met was very special. I do believe he knew that the cat was not well at all. For this reason is why I said possibly with cats. I will have him meet my other cat to see how he does. I do have a feeling that he will be ok with a cat who is dog friendly.
Due to the fact that poor Yankee was on a tie out with his previous owners I don't believe he really had the chance to run and play with other dogs. This is one of the reasons why Yankee must go to a home with a fence and another dog so he can experience the joys of running and playing with another dog. To have been a neglected dog, he is the sweetest dog ever and just wants to run, play, and give you love. I think with his new freedom is one of the reasons why he does not act his age. He will need someone who has time to give him some training. He does listen and does want to please you. With the proper training I don't believe it will take long for him to be the perfect new family member that he would love to be.
So if you have the time and love along with Yankees individual needs, then please fill out an application so Yankee can find his new family to spend the rest of his happy life with. Have a happy holiday and Yankee will be enjoying life to the fullest until the perfect family comes along.
