11 month old • Male • 45 lbs
Tate has a beautiful reddish coat with touches of white and a sleek, compact build.
Tate is a very sweet, affectionate boy. He loves to be with people all the time and sneak in a lick to your face when he can! He also adores other dogs and needs a home with another canine companion to play with, to help reinforce his confidence, and to take cues about what is right. Tate also needs a fenced yard (he loves running around!).
He is very smart and learns very quickly. He takes enormous pleasure in his toys, Kongs, and chews. Crate- and house-trained, Tate sleeps through the night and never touches household belongings.
Initially sky and skittish, Tate needed some time to learn to trust—but his love for contact and cuddles with people helped him overcome his fears!
Tate is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, nauetered, and heartworm negagive.
Tate came from a rural shelter.
