Are you an adventure lover in need of a sidekick? Then look no further than Tara! This black and white speckled beauty loves to explore in the great outdoors. Whether you're in the mood for a swim, run, hike or just a leisurely stroll, Tara is up for it! If the weather's not cooperating, she likes to exercise her brain, learning new skills through training. She's already mastered "sit, "lay down and "kennel up".

While she loves to be active, Tara knows the importance of rest and relaxation. She's happy to spend her days napping or entertaining herself with toys. She loves attention from her people and is especially fond of chest scratches, but she isn't needy about it. She's a well-behaved houseguest -- perfectly housetrained and trustworthy when left home alone.

Tara could potentially live with a well-matched small dog, but she would thrive as the only pet in an adult-only home. (Kids can be pretty scary to her, so she prefers to hang with the grown-ups). She'd love a house with a yard to run around in, but she's flexible.

So if you're looking for a reason to get outside and get moving, let Tara be your motivation. Every adventure is sure to be greater with this sweetie by your side!
