Introducing Tao, a delightful 10-year-young pup retired sled dog with a heart full of charm! Tao’s welcoming party at the door includes wagging his tail and offering his back for some well-deserved pets.
Indoors, he’s low on energy, preferring to spend most of his time napping. Tao has a knack for finding the coldest spot in the house to snooze, and he’s a fan of open windows that let in the chilly breeze. He’s a social butterfly with fellow dogs, often charming them with a cute little “awoo” to initiate playtime. His love for dogs shines bright!
While crate training is a work in progress due to his size, Tao is a non-destructive sweetheart who prefers outdoor adventures over confinement. He has no bad habits, just a soft spot for chicken and a nose for cooking aromas.
On walks, Tao’s leash etiquette varies between 50% pulling and 50% enthusiastic sniffing, but his harness helps manage the excitement. He’s good with other dogs and cats, though his interaction with small kids is uncertain. While Tao is a gentle boy, due to his size and age, older kids would be best.
Tao is a shy boy who values canine companionship and a bit of personal space. He’s content to nap and relax independently, but he’ll gladly accept pets when you offer them. Brushing sessions are a favorite pastime, and his voice makes rare appearances during dog sightings or snowy days.
Although Tao is not demanding of constant human attention, he would thrive in a home with a canine buddy who can show him that humans are pretty great too. A yard would be a bonus, as he enjoys chasing birds and savoring the snow.
If you’re looking for a sweet, low-energy companion who adores dogs and has a soft spot for chilly weather, Tao might be the perfect addition to your home. Give this charming boy the loving forever home he deserves!
