Special Criteria
Sanctuary Visit Required

It's hard to know Tarlton and not think he's something special. Maybe it's the way he carries himself, or his sharp mind, or maybe how he makes each of his people feel so special when you're with him. Tarlton is a super smart dude who loves to learn new things and has lots of tricks in his arsenal that he loves to show off, like "roll over, "twirl, or "wave. He's a top notch cuddler and although he's quite a large dog, he sometimes forgets and thinks he's a lap dog. He'll cover you in slobbery kisses and quickly roll over for belly rubs. Tarlton is a confident dog, but can still be unsure of new people, so he does need a slower introduction when making new friends. He's usually more comfortable after a few walks and some tasty treats. Tarlton will make an amazing friend for a dog-savvy person who can keep him safe in a home environment when visitors and new people come over. Although Tarlton is super young at heart, he has developed some medical conditions in his old age. As much as he'd like to, he can't do any strenuous hiking due to some breathing issues. His back end is also not quite as strong as it once was, but he still gets around just fine. He just can't jump into high cars on his own like he used to. Tarlton doesn't seem to let his old age bother him, so hopefully it won't bother you either! He's also part of our *Single Pets program! That means he is eligible for a free flight home and waived adoption fee! *Single pets do best as the only dog or cat in the home.
