Sitter needed 4/15/21-4/18/21

Taco is such a silly and affectionate circus dog! He sometimes sits on his back two legs if you lift treats high above his head, and it will melt your heart. Taco is initially skittish and shy in the beginning, but once he notices you have tasty treats, he is ready to jump on you to get them. Once he knows you are friendly, he follows you everywhere and sits and shakes if you ask him. He definitely has the puppy dog eyes down and can thaw any heart with his gorgeous caramel eyes.

Taco tends to be a quieter pup, even in shelter life. Many dogs could be barking around him and he will just rest his head on the kennel door. Once he is away from the kennel, he walks nicely, no pulling and he makes good eye contact. This curious boy is sensitive and in tune with the humans that he trusts. He is also a high energy pup who is goofy.

Taco's perfect date would include treats, cuddles with his humans, nice walks and chasing squirrels of course! His ideal home would be in a low-traffic home with possibly a well-matched pup. Come meet this sweet boy, he's waiting to show you his tricks!
