Legs that go on for days

Bull Arab Cross Mix Breed

Meet York!

York, a Bull Arab mix is stunningly photogenic a 2 year old.  We suspect there’s a bit of extra greyhound in him given his lovely long legs and slender body, but like most pound dogs, his true breed mix will remain a mystery...

During his time in care, York has learned all about what it’s like to be a loved member of a family. After spending quite some time as a starving stray, he had no idea that people can be good. He now knows that people mean all the best things in life – food, fun and love.

York is a super-friendly, very happy dog. He absolutely loves to play with other dogs. Dogs are York’s favourite thing in the entire world and his entire face lights up whenever he sees another dog. He’s also great with dog-savvy cats and happily accepts being bossed around by the cats he’s currently living with.

York’s ideal home is one that has another big friendly dog a bit closer in size to him that will happily engage in lots of bouncy play. He loves having a decent sized yard to explore in and even though he’s got legs long enough to allow him to easily scale fences, he’s happy to stay on the right side of the fence.

York is making great progress with his training and know sit, stay, come , no and more. York is quite clever and eager to please and has even learnt a few tricks to please you.

Being a big and bouncy young dog, York is best suited to a home where any children in the family are aged 7 or older.

York is currently located in Townsville, QLD

* Interstate adoption is not available.

Hi team,

My name is Amanda Hoult and i am particularly interested in “YORK” 🙂 I am 48 yrs of age and wishing ever so much to meet York and if suitable provide him with a home, devotion, affection and companionship. My partner & i work from home & are quintessential home bodies but love to have a walk everyday. We have a small, harmonious family of 3, complete with our gorgeous cat Mimi who is a remarkably sweet & gentle rescue cat who has lived happily with 3 of my previous rescue dogs. Heart-break lasts ever so long and after 4 years i am finally ready to adopt another cat friendly dog who is clearly magnificently gentle and in need of a loving forever home. We can provide him with all the enrichment/requirements and love he shall ever need.
We live in Nundah, Brisbane – and are completely surrounded by a variety of adventurous walking tracks & lots of other playful dogs. There are 3 off leash dog parks, one of which has a long stretch of creek where all the dogs gather to swim & play with each other.
As i understand, 60% of a dog’s world is olfactory. I believe York’s hearing impairment is no disadvantage to him when there is a relationship built on trust. I have always walked my previous K9 loves on leash until trust and companionship is well established, and they never leave my side. I am more than confident i can form the same mutual bond & trust with York as i have with my previous dogs.

Looking forward to your reply.
Yours sincerely, Amanda

Hi, how big is York? I’ve previously had a deaf bulldog so happy to take on a deaf dog, but although willing to go for lots of walks I have quite a small courtyard
