Pittsburgh Pet of the Week: Yin
This five-year-old Mastiff is looking for her forever home. Make an appointment to meet her at Animal Friends.
Breed: Mastiff | Sex: Female
Age: 5.8 years | Weight: 104 pounds
Arrived: August 23, 2021
This sweet girl came to us through our Humane Investigation department. When Yin arrived, she was severely emaciated. Through the care and dedication of our medical team, Yin is in the process of putting on weight and looking for her forever home. To allow Yin to find her new family and not have to wait, she is available as a foster to adopt. During this time, Yin will start her new life and her adopters will be able to work with our medical team. This will include weekly weight checks. Yin would do best in a home with kids over the age of 13, and she could potentially go home with another dog pending a meet and greet at the shelter.
Each of our dogs has received a thorough medical examination, is current on all appropriate vaccinations (including rabies) and has been microchipped and spayed or neutered.
Animal Friends is open for adoption by appointment only, please email our Adoption team at AdoptionInfo@ThinkingOutsideTheCage.org to set up a time to visit.
Please read our adoption guidelines and start your application before coming to meet one of our dogs in person. A typical adoption can take up to an hour. Please visit at least one hour before closing if you plan to adopt that day.
