Meet Tulio

Tulio / M / 6 mos / Rat Terrier Mix / 18 lbs / Ajax

Meet Tulio! Tulio’s foster mum describes him as a quirky, clumsy and funny boy! He can be timid at first but once he’s had a chance to get to know you, he loves to snuggle up (and snore) with his trusted people. He enjoys being close by and will sleep at your feet while you’re cooking, cleaning or doing laundry. When his humans come home at night, he quietly cries, wiggles his butt and jumps in the air in excitement! Tulio is still learning how to use toys but so far he likes nylabones, crinkly stuffed toys and kongs. He is very gentle with his toys and does not destroy them. Tulio is very intelligent and does well with rules, boundaries and training. He even learned to sit the very first day! He is not really food motivated but he learns quickly from other dogs.

Once comfortable, Tulio is an affectionate and social boy but can be nervous of new people, especially men. With proper introductions and a bit of time, he comes around and was always very excited to meet new people at the shelter in Mexico.

Still adjusting to city living, Tulio’s ideal family will live in a house or condo in quieter, lower traffic neighborhood. They will be patient and willing to build his confidence through slow and gentle exposure to new people and situations. He would benefit from another well-adjusted dog to show him the ropes, but he’d also be fine as the centre of his new family’s world. Because he is still nervous of sudden or unexpected movement and noises, he would prefer older respectful kids (12+) who understand dog etiquette. He is not cat tested.

Tulio is medium energy and currently receives a 30 min walk in morning, longer in the evening and lots of backyard playtime. He walks well on leash but is sometimes afraid to pass new people and dogs and may try to back away. For this reason, he is dual leashed meaning he wears a leash around a harness and a collar so that if he were successful in backing out of one, he has a backup in place.

When his foster humans go out, Tulio is crated in the same room as his canine foster siblings and settles quickly. He has great house manners and could likely be trusted with free reign of a doggy-proofed space, but he does enjoy his crate. Tulio is doing very well with his house training provided he receives consistent opportunities to go outside. He has great recall (indoors and in the backyard) and is working on learning sit and paw.

As a condition of the adoption contract, Tulio's new family will be required to:

• Attend and complete a basic obedience class (proof required)
• Provide plenty of socialization opportunities – both dog and human – it's critically important at this stage.
• Provide consistent potty breaks to ensure his continued success.
