Yako is very friendly with people, he is not shy or fearful and likes to approach people with confidence to ask for some head rubs or, possibly, treats.
His previous owner dumped him at a vet’s clinic but luckily for Yako, the vet decided to foster him. He was healthy but he was filthy and quite thin. He had never lived inside a home so he’s still learning.
His Best Points :
Foster Report :
Yako has become my little assistant here, following me everywhere around the vets clinic, greeting clients and meeting lots of new friends everyday! He is, in general, very sociable but is not so friendly with entire male dogs. He is fine with females and neutered male dogs.
He’s compatible with cats.
Yako’s very affectionate, a total lap dog, he loves cuddles. He is very obedient, takes commands at first and has a good recall. He walks well on the leash.
He loves children! He’s active and very playful.

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog
Before being adopted, dogs will have bee vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance FREE, to be activated from the link on our website
For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
