Please read about Tuvé’s medical needs and rescue story before applying to adopt him.
Tuvé is a happy little dude who loves squeaky toys and seeks out cuddles. He’s happy spending time independently or with his favorite people, just content to go with the flow. Some of his expressions are so hilariously humanlike. When he looks at you, it truly seems like he learned your deepest secrets and is a little amused but also (probably) would never tell. Tuvé likes to keep his social circle small and would prefer a low-traffic home without a ton of excitement or kids.
Tuvé came to ABR as stressed out, nervous boy who was sensitive to touch and very guarded. He’d just lost the only home he’d ever known and had been taking a lot of serious medication for what was thought to be a brain tumor. After a few vet and specialist visits, it was determined that Tuvé is actually affected by hydrocephalus, which needed a complete change in meds to help control seizures. Once his body got used to things, he was a different dog! He played, wanted pets and scratches, and greeted the few visitors who came to his foster home. Tuvé’s forever family should be prepared to continue caring for him in the same way and focus on keeping his world calm, since stress can induce seizures.
Tuvé has gotten a long with dogs and cats in the past, but hasn’t lived full time in a home with either. He’s already a totally different dog than when he first arrived, too, so we want to be mindful that his preferences may have changed. We think he could enjoy the company of one other friendly dog in his home, so long as their relationship remains happy and stress free. Tuvé is not a fan of leash walking, and since the goal is to keep him calm and healthy, we’d prefer a home with its own yard for him.
