Summary When off leash with a spayed female Tremont engages in rough, vocal play. He will jump over the helper dog and spin around to solicit as well as during play. Though he arrived to the care center as a stray so in-home behaviors are unknown, the behavior department feels that Tremont could go to a home with another playful female dog (he has not yet been introduced to any males).
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 10/6/2016
During his initial medical examination, Tremont readily allowed all handling without issue.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (Suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)

A volunteer writes: Imagine my surprise at seeing the meaning of sweet Tremont’s name! “Over the hill”? 9 month-old Tremont is anything but! He is a babe in the woods, a fresh-faced soul, one to whom everything is new, exciting, and FUN! When I first meet Tremont he is easily leashed and off we go to begin our adventure. While just a young boy Tremont’s manners are already firmly in place. He tends to his business right away and walks wonderfully on leash. Of course the moment we’re in the public eye the accolades start coming. “Oh my goodness so cute!!!” “Awww how old is he??” “I love him!” Tremont responds to it all with a confident wag. He may be young but he’s heard all this before no doubt every day of his short life. At one point little Tremont and I stop for a few photos and this is where I regrettably and unintentionally upset our young lad. The moment I step away from him to take his picture, “WOOF!!!” A voice of disapproval at my leaving his side. But no worries. I keep our shoot short and sweet and in no time at all Tremont is right back where he wants to be. At the side of one of who adores him (that would be me!). Tremont is waiting to be admired at Manhattan’s ACC.
