Meet Tashi

For anyone interested in adopting from Hobo Haven, here are a few, but not all, criteria to be aware of:
PLEASE DO NOT use the introduce yourself feature that Petfinder provides
That function is NOT an application

Please be sure to read the dog's entire profile before applying to ensure that your family is a good fit with the dog's specific criteria for their ideal forever home.

As stated in their profile, an adoption application must be completed and approved, references will be contacted, as well as a home visit, prior to meeting available dogs.
Only those approved for adoption will be scheduled to meet the dog.

DOB Oct/20, Tashi is 50% Black Lab (father) and 50% Golden Retriever (mother)

Tashi is blossoming in her foster home!
This precious girl was very nervous when she arrived after living in a barn, but is truly loving life as a beloved pet, discovered how amazing couches and beds are, is eating well, and has now been spayed and had her vetting updated

Tashi loves her foster dog friends and looks to them for confidence in situations where she's unsure. She's a little more timid around loud and barky dogs, but she does warm up when she's given lots of room and time to interact when she feels ready.

Tashi will require another friendly calm dog in her new home to help her blossom, who also doesn't mind sharing their people since she is a velcro girl who loves her people and sometimes puts herself between her foster mom and their dog to seek attention.

She loves getting pets and kisses, so she seeks out a lot of attention. There are times when she does not do this, where she'll be happy to lay in her spot instead of interrupting Willa and I. She has never growled, she just loves affection.

Ideally she would have a dog companion to help her navigate her new home, and people who are home more often.
We have left her alone for up to 3 hours with no issues (uncrated). Tashi will settle on the couch or chair for a nice nap while we are away and is not destructive at all.

She does love to snuggle but is also a young active girl who loves her hikes and going on adventures.

While she would probably love a fenced in backyard, she does tend to jump very high, so would need a minimum 6' tall fence and solid commitment from her new family to be outside and supervising her whenever outdoors.
She is currently fostered in a home without fencing and is adapted to exploring with her foster mom on a long line for her yard time or on walks, so would also be fine without a fenced yard as long as her family did not let her out off leash.

OTHER HABITS/ROUTINES THAT WILL HELP THE DOG SETTLE INTO THEIR NEW HOME: Tashi likes to sleep in my bed and would do well if that continued. She gets up around 6:30am and we go out for a nice sniffy walk outside before breakfast.

HOW DOES YOUR FOSTER DOG RESPOND TO DOGS MET ON WALKS? She usually is curious and wants to interact, but sometimes is a little nervous if they are high energy or loud.

She will stare at dogs walking across the street, but does not bark. If the dogs are close enough she'll try to move in their direction, but is easily redirected.

She really loves people, and loves seeking affection.

Tashi can be shy/nervous meeting new people but once she feels comfortable she is great with men, women and children. She's met my three nieces and nephew and does very well with them. Every person she's met she really seems to like and will of course ask for many pets.

GOOD WITH CATS? Tashi has met a dog savvy cat in a home environment.
She took a bit to warm up and wanted to play. A cat in her forever home would need to be very dog savvy and have appropriate places set up to escape to if she chased. Tashi might want to play too exuberantly for most cats
She does require another suitable canine companion in her new home so in that case her attention would likely be less focused on a cat in the home with a canine playmate.

STRENGTHS/AREAS THEY HAVE IMPROVED ON: Playing with toys and exploring new items that I bring in (deliveries, groceries, etc). She's super sweet and loves to snuggle, gives the best kisses, and settles very well.

TRANSPORTATION? She rides with a harness and a seatbelt and has no motion sickness.
She seems to like when the window is open a bit beside her-she is always safely tethered with a harness/seat belt. She doesn't react to outside vehicles or people.

*Children must be over 10yrs (due to shyness in new scenarios ), respectful and dog savvy
