Dog Story: Tiko is a handsome little fellow. He weighs about 25 lbs. and stands about 16, of course he is only 6 months old so he has a little growing to do. Tiko and his littermates where surrendered to a shelter by a breeder who was closing his kennel and from there brought into the ABR foster program. He seems to be the shy one of the bunch, I doubt if he’s been far from his littermates. He is great friends with our dogs and is slowly learning it’s ok to come to us and be our friend too. He is getting better at that every day. When we pet him and talk to him he is a very happy boy, he just has to get over that initial shyness. He is fine with the Grandkids, very soft and gentle. I doubt if he has a mean bone in his body. Tiko shows absolutely no aggression towards anyone, but he is still a bit fearful of people. He is not food or handling aggressive, will share his food and water with the other dogs, or with us for that matter. He seems to figure things out quickly, follows and learns from the other guys. Tiko is good at telling us he needs to go outside and doesn’t go in his crate. Teeks is a young guy, and as such is a clean slate. Someone who has experience with pups would be the best match for him. Teach him, guide him and love him, he will be your best friend for life. Since these pups have had very little socialization, Teeks is still learning that being with people is a good thing, it takes him a while to warm up to you.. He is a little fearful of quick movements and is not yet accustomed to leashes. A fenced yard is a must for him as he is not trained on a leash. Tiko is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, heartworm negative and on preventative. No sight unseen adoptions for this guy. We feel it is important for Teeks that all family members (human and canine) should meet to assure that there is a good match. If this adorable little pup sounds like the one for you, please complete the adoption application and mention Tiko.
