Hi! My name is Yancey.

I was in a shelter that lacked the resources to continue to care for me, so I came to Animal Humane Society to find a new home.

People describe me as energetic. Energetic dogs love to be busy, both physically and mentally. We often enjoy seeing and doing new things with our families and are often best matched with active people. Energetic dogs do best in homes that can provide them adequate exercise and mental stimulation, such as running, hiking, or playing Frisbee.

People also describe me as playful. Playful dogs enjoy playing with toys and often enjoy other busy interactions. We may like a good game of fetch or just quietly chewing on a stuffed animal. No matter which toys we choose, we prefer to include our families in the fun.

Help bring out the best in me so I can be an ambassador for my pit bulls everywhere! Adopt me and you’ll get a free eight-week training pass to the Animal Humane Society Training School at the Coon Rapids, Golden Valley, Woodbury, or Now Boarding locations. To learn more about pit bulls and this special offer, please see an adoption services specialist.

I participated in a behavior program for Possessive Pooches, dogs that exhibit resource guarding behaviors when approached while eating or while in possession of a valued item, such as a pig’s ear. My new family will get adoption support and materials to help me succeed in my new home. Please see an adoption services specialist for more information.

Forget-Me-Not

Hi, I’m Yancey, If you’ve ever experienced being picked last at a team draft or a dance, you know how I feel. For some reason, prospective adopters have passed me by without getting to know me and what a great pet I could be if given a chance. The staff and volunteers know how special I am and hope that you consider me when you’re looking for a new pet. Some of the activities I enjoy include: playing with a toy, and being pet.
