Background

The PACK rescue team found a litter of puppies trapped in the drain in the winter of 2015. Tender was rescued among his brothers and sisters. After being rescued, he was diagnosed with canine parvovirus. Fortunately, Tender had survived the treatment, and is now a healthy dog. He has grown into this slim handsome dog even he loves eating. He grew up in the PACK sanctuary and has never lived in a family home. His personality is very friendly and stable. Tender has enrolled in the PACK’S Academy. He completed the first half of the Academy, and is ready to join a foster home! He is the “perfect” dog for you and your family!  

Personality

Tender is a subtle dog, and it takes time for him to warm up to you. He is friendly to people he knows, his insecure makes him a bit defensive towards strangers. With time, you can build a sense of trust with him. He is not really interested in other dogs. He gets along with other dogs, but he also need time to get familiar with others first. If the other dog steps into his territory, he will growl and warn the dog. The gentle and mellow Tender is a suitable dog for children and elders!

He loves snacks, so it won’t be difficult to train him. One small thing is he cannot stay focus for a long time. He will take the initiative to approach familiar people, like to be petted. He is not so sensitive once he is familiar with the surroundings. He is very gentle and stable.
