Hi, I’m Tarka!

A very animated pup that will jump and leap straight into your heart!  Since I am full of rambunctious energy I will need a home that can provide plenty of physical and mental enrichment, so if you’re an active person, I would be a great sidekick!  I would also love a home that has previous dog experience that will continue my socialization using reward based training, that way I can carry on with being my happy and gregarious self!

If you would like to meet me, please complete this online adoption inquiry form!
