YAKO was going to be killed by his owner as a new born. He was born with deformed front legs. Luckily, his neighbor found out and asked him if she could keep the puppy.
YAKO arrived to a home with a lot of love and attention. He was bottle fed and lived with a group of lovely dogs.
The lady who rescued him lost her job recently and so she had to go back to live with her parents and she could not take YAKO with her due to his size. She also knew she could not afford to pay his vet bills, so she asked us for help.
YAKO has never been mistreated and that shows. He’s very sociable, loves people and all other dogs. He has never lived with cats but he wants to play with them when he sees them. He was not aware how big and strong he was, but he has quickly learned to respect smaller animals (dogs and cats). He’s a gentle giant with a huge heart for children and people in general.
When he arrived he had pain, so we took him to get x-rays done. He has some deformed bones and distended tendons due to the deformity, but that does not bother him at all, what bothered him was a small pointy finger bone that was too sharp and was scratching his flesh every time he put his finger on the floor. That’s why he was always limping.
After the operation he walks and plays like any normal dog, but with his small deformity.
He needs a home with a garden and another large and young dog to play with.
