TULO’s morning ritual consists of waking up at a leisurely time, checking himself out in the mirror and letting out a gentle bark like ya, you’re ready for this day you dreamboat. These are like his daily affirmations and it’s important that he continues with them because even though he’s a total babe, TULO can be a little insecure. He’ll definitely need a forever home committed to building his confidence. Currently he can be very nervous around other dogs so we’d like him to be the only pup in the home until he gets more comfortable. He reacts by barking and growling at dogs, and will definitely need some training so he can learn how to properly introduce himself. He can also be nervous around males but once he is introduced he seems to be fine! He’s not great on his leash and has been working on this in foster. A gentle lead has been helpful with controlling the pulling and ongoing exposure is helping him become more comfortable strolling around the neighbourhood. He responds very well to praise and with the right humans he’ll be all swag in no time. He definitely needs ongoing training and it’s important that he gets a couple good walks per day so he doesn’t act up. With his people TULO is very sweet and considers himself a giant lap dog (are you sure I can’t fit your purse tho?!) and would cuddle all day and night if he could. Is very in touch with your emotions and just makes you feel loved whether it’s tenderly placing a paw on your leg or staring deep into your eyes to tell you everything’s ok. He shouldn’t go to a home with kids and he hasn’t been tested with cats. Fill out an application to adopt this heartthrob.
