About Me

Currently located in RI, Tāne (pronounced tah-nay) was named after the God of the Forest in New Zealand Tāne Mahuta. He was pulled from a euthanasia list in SLC and has been working very hard in his training and rehabilitation. He loves his people but doesn't really trust strangers. His ideal home is quite experienced and able to read dog behavior. His OB is great, has strong leash work. He is crate trained and potty trained. He is looking for a home where he has structure, regular routine and lots of love. He can live with some dogs but not overly dominant dogs - particularly the males. He is not okay with strangers in his home as he will resource guard his humans, so visitors are welcome but he should be kenneled. Quite critter oriented so needs to be managed or not live with cats. No children.

A few interesting facts

1.

I am named Tāne (pronounced tah-nay) after Tāne Mahuta the God of the forest in New Zealand. Before I was in the shelter I was found running at large several times a week so this name seemed fitting.

2.

I love snuggles and belly rubs!

3.

I have a huge head and I knock it on everything!
