Tahoe was saved off the streets by a kind citizen. They took him to the shelter and no one came for him. He was neglected, thin, has skin itch from fleas and fly bite ears. At the shelter he was sad and confused. Tahoe warmed up and did well meeting other dogs but did not play since he was too distracted. He enjoys being petted and getting attention. Poor Tahoe had a rough life of neglect, probably living alone in a backyard with no vet care, very little food and left dirty with insects. We rescued Tahoe and he got his vet care. He was friendly and gentle with 2 of our volunteer transporters. Did fine at our vet office. Tahoe now needs to relax, eat healthy foods and get healthy.

1/26/20 Update from Foster Home: He is a sweet dog who is learning to live indoors with humans. Good in his crate. He is eating a ton of food and hopefully will become more filled out soon. His skin issues are healing. Gets along with my pit bull and plays fine. He gets along well with women and older children. Likes being petted by us and gives us kisses. He seems to have an issue with men - he still growls at foster dad but they are working through it with daily positive reinforcement. Good on leash. Not much pulling. House-training is in process -- needs to be escorted quickly on leash to prevent marking. Gets kinda antsy in the car. Howls and whines whenever he doesn’t get what he wants. Not an apartment/condo dog.
