More about Tuki
** 15/06/2023 – Applications for Tuki have closed as he is on a settling in and support period with a family **
Introducing Tuki, our handsome 18 month old Mastiff x Akita (best guess) who recently came into our care from the Tauranga City Council Shelter. Tuki is a big boy at 52kgs and will need an owner who can handle his size and strength (experience in owning large breed dogs is a bonus).
As Tuki is still quite new to Dogwatch, we are still learning about him and what home he will be best suited too. We do know that he has been great with all our volunteers so far and is a like a big oversized playful, sweet puppy! We do know that he has lived with another male dog before and has socialised well with other dogs (male, female, big and small) while he was the Tauranga Shelter. Due to his size, we feel that he would be best suited to a home with dog savvy children who have experience around large breed dogs. We do not know what he is like around cats as he has not been cat tested.
He will need some sort of daytime company initially with the ability to build him up to longer hours home alone once he has settled in. His new home must be committed to ongoing training (especially loose leading walking) and socialisation with this gorgeous boy.
