My Story

Date into Rescue: 8/19/2021

Reason for being in rescue: Lovingly surrendered by owners

Special Needs: Yeti is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. 

What kind of home would be best for me: For a boy with an unknown past, Yeti is better socialized than you would expect. Though timid on first meeting, Yeti is a wonderful companion who enjoys people. Yeti is looking for a home where he will be the only dog. He can live with other dogs, but it takes a while for him to warm up and he'd simply prefer to be your only. Yeti could handle children visiting, but doesn't want to live with them. There are too many noises and too many uncertain movements for this boy.

What is my personality like: Yeti was found running with a pack of dogs in some NC woods in 2019. A caring citizen took him home and spent the next 2 years teaching him what it means to be a beloved pet. 

Yeti is a wonderful companion. He is a sweet boy that would love to be the center of someone’s attention (in someone’s arms is where he always wants to be). He can be shy and hesitant upon first meeting but will open up eventually. He is very food motivated and will happily let you win his heart with food. He is not picky about what he eats in general (he could actually stand to lose a little weight!). Although he would do okay with another dog in the home he does not want another dog that would be directly in his face all the time. He takes time to warm up to other dogs so more calm dog would be ideal for him. He will look to other dogs to figure out what he should do as well.

Yeti likes to be able to sit back and relax so his primary goal in life is to find a family that wants to give him a couch!  Yeti could use some work on crate training but he does relatively okay on a leash. He would enjoy to get out and do some walking but don’t expect that he wants to do miles (he will tell you no by looking at you with those puppy dog eyes and who could resist picking him up!). He likes to live his life in comfort so expect to give him lots of beds!

Yeti is overall looking for a home to just be with a person in!

How do I act when I first meet new people: Shy, but friendly

Tips and Tidbits: Yeti was found as a stray by the owner that surrendered him to rescue. She celebrated his birthday as 2/19/2016. We have no history pre-2019 so this is truly a guess.

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
