he is a good dog, a fun dog, a dog who now knows that people can be trusted. His leash manners are impeccable. Tai will walk faithfully by your side, whether you're walking, jogging, skateboarding or riding a bike. He also loves to play ball.
Now here's the catch - once Tai knows and is comfortable with you (which takes about 5 minutes), he will try to protect you. If strangers walk up, he thinks it's his job to tell them to back off. Same goes for strangers knocking at the door. Tai needs an adopter who understands and that this is something that he needs to work through. If new people he meets tell him to sit and give him treats, he will know they are friends and mean him and you no harm.
Tai lived with a teenager in his last home and he says he loved to jump up and kiss him
Tai has a lot of love to give, he just needs to find the right family. Maybe a retired person or couple, someone who works in their garage a lot and would like some company, a nature-lover who enjoys hiking, jogging or biking. After all he's been through, Tai just needs to live the simple life.
Once you meet this handsome dude, you'll realize he is the only one you need, but If he is introduced appropriately into a home with another dog, he will be fine
Tai is located in Long Beach, NY (Long Island) and can be adopted within 3-4 hours of NYC. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in meeting Tai.
