A volunteer writes: Legs for days, a smile that will make you melt and a winning personality–that’s Taino! Taino was surrendered to us because his owner was having a “personal problem.” By all accounts, Taino was the perfect family dog! He is reportedly relaxed and playful with children of all ages, playful with small dogs he meets and tolerant of the cats he used to live with! His owner stated that he is mostly housebroken, and that proved to be true on our walk. Taino loves to play with toys! When he gets one, he will run around the yard with it, smiling and prancing like a little deer. He was eager to show me his tricks and he knows “sit,” “down,” “give paw,” and even “speak”, and performs them all effortlessly! Though Taino is a young dog, full of energy and spunk, he can be quite the couch potato, too. He will lay across your lap and cuddle up next to you like the love bug that he is! Taino’s idea of the perfect day is a long walk and some fetch in the park and then to come home and watch a Netflix marathon of your favorite show. Are you in? Ask to meet him today!
