Meet Cairo!

Cairo is amazing and a staff favorite! He is 3 years of age, knows commands and has doggy manners. He knows his name and will come when called. He can sit and greet you like a proper gentleman with a handshake. If you ask him to stay he will oblige most graciously and only ask for a little love in return. He is quick to bond with people and he loves whole heartedly. He was surrendered to YAPS because he did not bond with the other dog that lives in the household where he was staying. He is a great dog to binge watch tv with or to take on a nice stroll. Really, Cairo is a giant sweetheart just waiting to devote his life to someone.

He's been around other dogs and we believe he can bond with a dog that has a calm personality. He isn't a fan of cats. He will do well with children over 5 years.

Cairo is waiting to meet you. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we can send you all the details on how to set up an interview with Cairo.
