Pittsburgh Pet of the Week: Yin

This five year old Mastiff is looking for his forever home. Make an appointment to meet her at Animal Friends.

Elevate: Mastiff | Sex: Female
Age: 5.8 years | Weight: 104 pounds
Arrival: 23 Aug 2021

This nice girl came to us through our Humanitarian Investigation Department. When Yin arrived, she was severely emaciated. Thanks to the care and dedication of our medical team, Yin is gaining weight and looking for his forever home. To allow Yin to find her new family and not have to wait, she is available in foster care 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 better in a home with children over 13, and she could potentially go home with another dog while waiting to meet at the shelter.

Each of our dogs has undergone a thorough medical examination, is up to date on all appropriate vaccines (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 schedule a viewing time.

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 an hour before closing if you plan to adopt on that day.
