Hey there, I'm YARA!

I'm fully grown, about 2 years old, and the perfect size..so my shelter moms tell me! 😍

I love to play.... rubber chickens are my favorite toy🐔!! I love to play outside and love car rides. I can sit, stay, and can even catch treats, I'll show you! 🦴
I am dog and kid friendly, too. I'd love to have someone to play with me.

I'm the longest shelter resident 😢, I've been at the shelter a while, and I'm not sure why??!? I'm a shelter favorite and they are sooo nice.....but I want my own home. 🏡

Please come meet me and give me a chance, I'm a good girl.♥️
