Story
Meet Bubba, a 2.5-year-old neutered male Pitbull/Husky mix.The person that found Bubba noted that he loves to go on long walks/hikes and is always up for an adventure. He does pull on the leash but will calm down after his initial excitement is released. He did good in the finders car and happy to go. Bubba would do best in a home with no cats as he does seem to be overly curious in them. Bubba didn't like water at the finder's house and was scared of their sprinkler. Bubba was a little reserved with our staff when he first came in, but is slowly opening up and showing what a goober he can be. He likes to check out the park and go for walks and has started to do some zoomies, even if it seems as though he doesn't even know why he is doing them! It is likely that he will bond better to an active adopter that can make him part of their daily lives. Although he might be reserved at first, we are sure when this boy bonds he will be your best friend for life.*UPDATE*Bubba was adopted but had to be returned after 10 days. The adopter loved him very much and said that Bubba has been wonderful in the home and good on leash but sadly the roommate and Bubba were not a match for each other.If you are interested in adopting this pet please fill out an adoption questionnaire at www.yakimahumane.org. A Yakima Humane Society staff member will contact you once your questionnaire has been received. A Picture says 1000 words...right? While an animal's picture draws interest, the reality is that as a potential adopter most people would like as much information as possible about a pet. The Yakima Humane Society is an open admission shelter. What does this mean? Over 90% of the pets at the adoption center arrive as strays, no history of behavior or medical care is known. Adding a pet to your family is a big responsibility. Please research carefully and remember that adoption is life saving. Adopt Don't Shop.

Story
Meet J. Cole, a 2-year-old male Pit Bull/Husky mix... Well that is our best guess, some speculation has been thrown out he is a hybrid cross of a Seal and a Fox, once you meet him in person you will see what we mean! Can you believe that J. Cole has been with us since early March? He, like so many other amazing dogs, keeps getting overlooked and it is breaking our heart. J. Cole is a 48 pound bundle of energy, you should see this boy when he gets the zoomies, they are pretty epic. The good news is he can self entertain if given a small yard and a toy; his antics make us laugh as he will talk to his toy and toss it in the air while chasing it. He loves to be active and thinks that everyone should want to take him for a walk. J. Cole is a little hard to picture as he is always on the move. He does really like belly rubs and will flip right over for them. This pet is available for adoption on 3/10/23 and is located at the Yakima Humane Society. If you recognize this animal please contact the adoption center at 509-457-6854.If you are interested in adopting this pet please fill out an adoption questionnaire at www.yakimahumane.org.

Story
Meet Karla, a 1-year-old female Pit Bull Terrier mix.Karla arrived at the adoption center after being reported to animal control as a stray. Karla has obviously not being getting the care she needs. She is currently only 38 pounds but should be much heavier. Karla was fearful when she was brought in and didn't understand what the staff wanted from her. She does get vocal and back away when she is confused or scared. Karla has done well with the staff caring for her. When she was taken out for pictures she came right to the front of her kennel for the leash and was happy to get kisses. Karla has met a small dog at the adoption center and done well but it is always best for adopted animals to meet all other dogs in the home prior to leaving the shelter. Karla did great in one of the office at the shelter. She gets playful and can be a little mouthy so young children should not play with her until she is trained more. Karla is going to be very beautiful once she fills out more and has a chance to learn to trust people. She is likely to be vocal at anyone coming near her home so will make a great alarm system but is not a guard dog!This pet is available for adoption on 4/13/23 and is located at the Yakima Humane Society.

Boxer American Pit Bull Terrier

Male, adult
Yakima, WA
Size
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Details
Not good with kids, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Meet Gordo, an almost 3-year-old male Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier mix.Gordo is such a large handsome boy. He was still growing when he came to us in December of 2022 weighing a mere 66 pounds, but has now filled out and is weighing close to 80 pounds. After being in the shelter for a while Gordo is understandably a little "pent up" but after a good walk or time outside in our off leash area you see that he has quite a bit of potential. Gordo gets very excited when he sees other dogs and not all dogs enjoy the "energy" he gives off so if you have another dog in the home we recommend doing a meet and greet between your dog and Gordo prior to adoption.Gordo was in an home prior to coming to the YHS and did get some training at some point as he already knows the commands for sit and shake, he will eagerly do both for a treat. He was impounded by animal control and there were some abuse allegations so it is important to understand that Gordo has not always had an easy life. Gordo has a friendly personality and likes attention but is still working on some basics such as "off" as some time he doesn't want to wait for you to dish out the love. He doesn't understand his size all the time and can get a bit over enthusiastic when playing tug-of-war or when he gets excited about something so we think that a home without kids would be best for now. That's not to say Gordo wouldn't love to have to kiddos keep him company in his future, we just think he needs some stability and training to polish him off so he doesn't accidentally knock a kid over with his enthusiasm or get mouthy with them while playing. If you are looking for a dog that you can work with and grow with Gordo might be the boy for you. He doesn't need much before he becomes a fantastic member of doggie society.

Story
Meet Betty, a 1-year-old female Boxer mix.Betty is very typical of her breed. She has a lot of energy and gets excited to get outside. Betty is working on leash training but gets excited and vocal when she sees other dogs on her walks, so a bit more socializing would be recommended to help her stay calm when she sees all of those "friends". She loves to get out in the play yard and go for walks in the park. While Betty has been very social at the adoption center it is important that she meet all K9's in a home prior to adoption to make sure they can match her personality and energy level. This athletic goober will make someone a fantastic companion especially if they are Boxer lovers.

Story
Meet Caramelo, a nine month old Boxer/American Staffie mix. At least that is what we think Caramelo's breed mix is, we also suspect there may be some Goblin or other character from Lord of the Rings mixed in there, but that is up to you to decide. Caramelo was brought in as a stray with Cookie Dough and they got along well together but we always recommend a dog meet and greet if you have another canine companion at home. They were actually both found behind the YHS property along with three cats. Caramelo did fine with those three cats but it is important to remember that new cats are still really fun to meet and to acclimate her to a home with cats might take a bit of time and reinforcement, just like with any new dog. Caramelo is still very much a puppy so we don't see any issues with her acclimating to a home with other dogs, especially if they want to play. This friendly, active girl loves to go for walks and get very excited to say HI to everyone. Caramelo loves treats but she did come into our shelter pretty hungry so she is still learning how to take them nicely, a flat hand works best when giving her a goodie right now. Since she is treat motivated training should be a breeze if you out in a little time, she already sits on command! With a couple puppy manners we see her being a top notch dog!
