Talie is a very special boy. He was rescued from extreme conditions and is having trouble adjusting to being a happy dog. In the three years with his foster, he has come a long way. However, he still needs a lot of patience and experience to bring him into the dog he could be. Talie will always be a shy boy, so if you are looking for a dog that will turn into an outgoing, cuddly family pet then Talie is not the one for you. He is extremely nervous and will take a lot of time, patience and work to adjust to a new home and grow from that point.
He is good with other dogs but can please rough and needs to work on his manners. At this point, he would be better suited to a house with other medium to large dogs. He has not been cat tested. The foster family that Talie has been living with has a child that was only 10 when they took him in and he has interacted with young children. He is very calm with them. However, it is best for him to be in a home with children 7+.
Talie loves to play outside. Especially with other dogs, that is where you see his personality shine, but he will need work on his basic skills: come, sit, stay and walking on a leash all need to be taught. He is a very playful boy when outside and loves to chase a ball. Inside, he is a very easy keeper. He does not have food aggression and spend most of his time inside the crate.
