My story

If you come to meet Tajin, this sweet boy may be a bit shy at first - but just briefly. He will soon warm up to you and begin giving you so many kisses! He'll become your very affectionate and loyal companion.

Now in foster, Tajin's perfect day starts with waking up, eating breakfast, going for a walk and coming home to play with his foster's big dog. Then he wants to cuddle with his foster mom and take a nap. And when he wakes up, he likes to chew his fluffy toys - and get more petting.

Tajin walks well on his leash, just nervous when a human stranger walks toward him. At home, he's a smart boy who's working on his obedience training. He already understands sit and paw and is quickly learning to go potty outside. He's also comfortable in his crate and does well there or free roaming when his foster is away.

This playful, curious boy will love a home with patient parents who can be with him most of the day, and he will enjoy a doggie playmate. Come meet this adorable boy. Offer him your ID and he'll become your cuddle bunny! You can also keep up with his adventures on Instagram @tajin_the_foster_pup
