    Tam is very sweet, calm, and overall low maintenance. He loves his people, big or little! He’s good with other dogs and loves to play with his foster sister who is twice his size. When he was introduced to cats he didn’t pay them much attention at all.

    Around the house he’s happy to find a place near you (or on you) to lie down and relax. He does sometimes get overwhelmed with new situations with lots of commotion, but adapts quickly. If he’s being left alone in the house it’s best if he has his own room, away from where he can see his people going away. He sleeps well in his crate at night but is also great when left out to his own devices. He has no food aggression, but fairly strong food motivation which comes in handy for getting him to do things or go places he doesn’t really want to. He’s an easy walker on leash, but does need some work with redirection, especially when he sees those pesky rabbits wandering the neighbourhood! We’re working on a few commands including sit, stay, and asking to go outside. He’s a blank slate in this regard. He does need a little help with his manners, when you’re on his level he wants nothing more than to be up close and personal for snuggles, and he’s persistent!

    If you might be interested in a low key, 40lbs lap dog, you should apply to meet Tamarama today!
