Dog of the Week!


I’m so excited at how far Tamale has come! He’s been with us probably almost 2 months. When he first came you couldn’t touch him, he didn’t cuddle, he didn’t get on the bed/couch, the list goes on. Just this week he got on the bed for the first time. He gets on the couch to snuggle, he gives kisses and he even paws at me for me to give him attention and pet him. Big improvements! Next goals are to work on picking him up (this is just me scared of getting bit) and bath (he really needs one).

Tamale, cuz he’s a hot one is 3 years old and 10 lbs! I will need a home without young kids. I’m a little guy with a big bite. It takes me a while to trust people. I really want to be loved and give love but have a hard time with trust. I enjoy other dogs and really enjoying playing with little dogs. I love all snacks (extremely food motivated) and even learning to chew on bones. I currently am at my foster’s house with 3 small/ medium dogs but got to play with a couple big dogs and did well. We also have cats here. I like to chase them but they don’t seem to like me. I keep my leash on so it’s easier to get me without getting bit. I need someone who will love me and show me attention but be patient with me while I work on trust. I like to rub my back against your feet and when I feel safe I love scratches.
