You'll be the talk of the block with this gorgeous gal by your side! Yara isn't just a pretty face, however. She's smart, too. Initially shy and unsure in new environments, patience, positive guidance & structure will help this girl quickly learn the ins and outs of a home environment. When she's outside, Yara loves to run, play (tunnels are a favorite) and explore. She'd make a fantastic running or jogging buddy. If you're in the market for a big dog, put Yara on your short list! Adoption of Yara includes training support before, during, and after the adoption process to ensure a successful transition into the home.
