Welcome to Encinitas Patch Pet of the Week.
Each week, Encinitas Patch will work with the Rancho Coastal Humane Society to feature a pet in need of a loving home.
This week, meet Yum Yum, a shy yet extra sweet girl who needs a home with love to spare.
Name: Yum Yum
Type of animal: Puppy
Age: 4 months
Weight: 13 pounds (could be 50 pounds fully grown)
Gender: Female, spayed
Breed: Jack Russell Terrier mix
Okay with dogs? Yes
Okay with cats? Unknown
Yum Yum can be a little bit shy with people at first, but once she warms up, she's happy to bring you one of her toys, which she loves carrying around in her mouth. She absolutely loves other dogs and would do well with a buddy. Yum Yum hasn't had contact with cats. If you have a cat and you're interested in Yum Yum, RCHS is happy to do a controlled 'cat test' to see how she does.
Because of her young age, Yum Yum will do best in a home where she gets lots of love and puppy training. With a little patience, Yum Yum will grow up to be a really great dog!
Yum Yum is available for adoption at Rancho Coastal Humane Society. Her adoption fee is $175 which includes a medical exam, spay, up to date vaccinations, and microchip.
is located at 389 Requeza St. in Encinitas. The hours of operation are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., except on Tuesday, when the shelter opens at 11:30 a.m.
