It's impossible not to smile when you see Tahini because it looks like she's smiling back at you! She seems like the happiest dog on the planet and is one of the sweetest too. Tahini is eager to please and enjoys being affectionate with her humans. She loves being petted on her head-it's her favorite spot and she'll reward you with unlimited kisses!

Tahini is a very smart, well-behaved pup who is crate-trained and house-trained. She always wants to make her people proud and will let you know when she needs to go outside. Tahini can be a little nervous when it comes to new or unusual noises or new things. (She's still learning what toys are all about). She would do best with a patient and calm household who will give her time to get comfortable. She could potentially live with older, respectful children or a well-matched dog buddy.

If you want to see Tahini smile, take her for a car ride or a long walk. These are two of her favorite things and she'll let you know it! On walks, she may get a little excited if she sees another dog and let out a bark, but she can be easily distracted and will move past with no issues. Tahini's third favorite thing is to nap after a long walk, or cuddle on the couch and take it easy. Tahini loves treats and is currently learning the commands, 'sit' and 'stay'. If it means getting more treats, she'll be very excited to continue learning more commands with you.

Tahini is a very special pup and will make a great new best friend. Waking up to her sweet, smiling face every morning would put you in the best mood. Don't miss out on Tahini-come meet her today!
