Meet Tate! Born around January 2019, he is a pint-sized puppy with a small frame. We expect his ideal adult weight will be around 60-70 pounds when he finishes growing.
When he came into rescue from the shelter, he was malnourished and very thin. His coat was ragged and in poor condition. In foster care, he is putting on much-needed healthy weight, his coat is becoming thick and lush, and he found his smile again.
Little Tate is very sweet, shy, and low key. He is friendly, yet a little reserved with people. He has a calm and relaxed demeanor, and he is gentle with children and cats.
He is even calm when playing with toys! He prefers to lay and chew them rather than toss them around.
He likes playing with other dogs that are respectful to him. He enjoys their company and returns their respect. He needs a big, playful doggy companion in his forever home. This playmate will keep him company and help build his confidence. If you don’t already have a furry playmate for him, you can adopt one from us!
Tate is leash trained, dog-door trained, rides nicely in a car, and is nice to cats.
He really enjoys being outdoors, and he hopes his forever home has a nice yard for him to enjoy. He relishes snoozing on cool grass or on a shaded porch.
He is generally quiet, barking sometimes at people and animals that are outside his fence, but not so much during play.
He would probably do best in a less active forever home where he can get lots of human attention.
All of our dogs require secure and VISIBLE fencing.
Adoption Fee: $275
* Note to NW Adopters: The adoption fee does not include the cost of transport.
There are many things YOU can do to help us:
1. Adopt! If this Gentle Giant looks like the one for you, fill out an adoption application today!
2. Foster! This is a temporary commitment that gives all dogs in need the assured time to find the loving home they deserve. Your benevolent decision to foster unquestionably determines whether a loving dog gets to live or die.
3. Donate! Safeguarding these Gentle Giants result in expenses that are in upwards $8/day. If veterinary care is needed, the costs exponentiate to $1,000+ for a single dog. Every penny you donate makes an impact when it comes to vet bills! If you were to make a one-time donation of just $25, you would be adding 3 more valuable days to the life of every rescued dog and provide the chance to find the home they have been waiting for their entire life.
As always, all donations are gratefully accepted.
