Oh hi. My name is Yava. I’ve been told I’m a very good girl. If I had to pick my favourite thing, it would be human affection. I like to greet my foster human by wagging my tail, doing a little circle, and giving her a hug.

I’ve been told that photos don’t do me justice and that I’m even more beautiful in person. I have little tiger stripes.

I currently live with two huskies and a cat! We all get along great. I do show a tiny bit of resource guarding – when I’m eating and one of them passes by, I growl a little. I’m easily redirected away from this behavior! My foster calls my name and I go to her – affection is more important to me than food.

If I live with other animals in my forever home, please feed me separately or manage this behaviour please! I mean no harm – I came from a shelter in Lebanon that has over 800 dogs and this is just the way we communicate sometimes.

I love to go on long walks (also known as sniffsniffsniff time) and I get zoomies and like to play! If properly exercised, I am low key inside. I like to snuggle or nap near you.

I am a smart cookie and I’m still young so a family that continues my training would be great. I love to use my brain!

I’m still shy with new people, especially men, so please be patient with me! I’m told that I’m more than worth it. I respond well to lots of positive reinforcement.

I am good in my crate but I’d much rather be with you so a family who is home more often than not would be so lovely! Please apply for me if you sound like my perfect fit.
