I'm Yeti, Adopt Me!
German Shepherd Dog Mix | Young | Male

One-year-old Yeti is a handsome young chap who’s looking for a special new home! This sweet boy may be a bit shy towards strangers from time to time, but those who take the time to become his friend will meet the REAL Yeti – a dog who’s clever, active, affectionate, and fun! He loves the great outdoors and would make a fantastic hiking partner or jogging buddy. He already knows a trick or two, and he’ll do just about anything for a tasty piece of cheese! Yeti would especially like to find a guardian who won’t mind it when he suddenly decides to lean his entire body weight into them for one of his patented side hugs! Yeti has a positive history with other dogs. Yeti prefers a home without small children. If you have children 16 and up, we ask that you bring them in for a meet and greet before adopting Yeti. He currently weighs 72 pounds.

All dogs benefit from training! ARF was named 'Best in the East Bay for Dog Training' in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 by Diablo Magazine. All adopters receive a $50 discount off their first class.

Yeti's adopter must be at least 18 years old with valid state-issued identification. ARF encourages family members to participate in the adoption process, especially children and family dogs. Please visit ARF's web site for information on adoption and to view more cute canines.
