If you are looking for a chap to fill up your dance card for the evening, come meet Tango! He will dance his way into your heart. This mellow 3-year-old pup is a bit of a "boo dog", meaning he is skittish around new people and sudden movements. However, he has already chilled out considerably after being in a home environment. Now, he's happy to follow his human friends around constantly. He will thrive with a patient family who understands he needs a bit of time to feel safe, and once he does, the reward is well worth it.

Once he moves to his forever home, he will become a very loyal companion. His foster home doesn't have young kids, but he seems like he would do great with them. He's very gentle, and loves short people who are down at his level. He also enjoys walks, and does great when other dogs come close.

Come meet this sweet, lovable boy. He'll be your dance partner for life!

Come meet your new best friend
