Currently located in Texas 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 OB is great, he walks amazingly well on a loose leash or in a structured heel. His crate training and potty training is great! He is looking for a home where he has structure, regular routine and lots of love. No other dogs, cats or children would be best and a home where there are not many visitors. This boy is all BIG mal and needs to go to a trainer or very experienced home.
A few interesting facts
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.
