Health Notes: Tango came from our target community because a resident was concerned about the health of her and her 3 puppies.  While Tango had no immediate medical concerns, she was underweight and her coat was dry and dull. Fast forward to today when a regular and nutritious diet has brought Tango to a healthy weight and put a shine on her coat.  Tango is up to date with DACPP, Bordatella, Rabies and is spayed and microchipped.

Behavior Notes: Tango is a low energy, fearful and shutdown pupper. This beautiful girl would rather cower and run away than be close to humans. While she is currently in a no pet foster home, we believe that she would thrive best in a family who has another dog, who is well-balanced. We are looking for her future pawrent(s) to have experience in reading dog body language, and to have the patience of a Saint. Tango would thrive best in a home with older children who have experience with dogs, and who understand that Tango needs space often. She is scared of loud noises including raised voices, t.v. and passing cars. She fears being carried and doesn't like when it gets dark outside. In the past, Tango has reacted by growling at the threat that has startled her. Her dog savvy foster home has not allowed the situation to escalate past the growl and have removed her from the situation when this occurs. She is nervous around men, but is getting used to her foster dad. We recommend that if she lives with a male, that a training plan is put into place to make the situation the most positive it can be. And we can help you with that! Tango has shown signs of protecting her high valued items like food and toys (wouldn't you if you always had to fight for survival!?), but this behavior has only been seen on rare occasions. We will ask you to have a place in your home that Tango can call her safe haven when she needs to de-stress or is startled and needs a place to go. Tango is house trained (what a good little girl!) and not a flight risk as she is too shy to go anywhere. If she is startled, she may try to find a safe place to hide and if you have a place for her in your home for her to retreat to, that's where you will find this sweet angel who needs someone to take a chance on her.
