Hi everyone…my name is Tarcin…aka Mr. Excitement. I’m a 1-year-old boy who is still very much an exuberant puppy. The good people at GR took me in and sent me to this amazing teacher who is showing me all the things you humans want me to know. You see, I seem to have been gifted with too much zest. I know…how can you have too much of that? Well, you can and I’m the one who inherited it. I generally love people and other dogs and I show it with a ton of enthusiasm. I jump up. I love attention so I’m pushy that way. I have even been described as a ‘wild child’; however, I don’t think that’s quite fair because my zest for life is not wild. It’s just an unusual lust, as I wake up each day with great fervor. I am learning a lot and doing pretty well. My teacher says I’m super smart. In my previous life, food was scarce and toys were a luxury I never had. Consequently, I developed an instinct to guard what little I had. My incredible teacher has been showing me that in my new life, food is plentiful and toys are for play, not possession. I generally do well but there are times where I will test you and can be growly. It’s interesting to note that I don’t guard at all with other dogs ~ only humans. I am still learning to trust and I tend to respect men more. Nevertheless, it’s a journey and I will need continued guidance and patience and my new family would have to reinforce and continue my training so I stay on course. I am happy to share that my teacher has committed to guiding my new family through the transition phase and beyond. You can count on him anytime and he’ll be right there to lend a helping hand through any little bumps in the road. My ideal family would be adventurous and take me for hikes and other activities. I love the car so you can take me everywhere any time. I’m okay on the leash; however, if I see another dog, I will certainly pull to get to them. A secure fenced yard is critical so I could do my zoomies safely. It would also be great if you had another very energetic, playful dog in the family so we could burn off steam together. For now, it would also be good to have no children in the home. I have not been cat tested but I don’t seem to have a prey drive so cats might be okay but in truth, we don’t know. I also didn’t like loud noises but I’ve learned there is nothing to worry about so that is getting better as well. It’s crucial to talk to me calmly, quietly, and lovingly as I respond well to ‘serene’…I can’t stress this enough! I don’t respond well to raised voices or agitated behaviour. I’m young and still need a lot of puppy attention and love. The good news is I’m a healthy boy, smart, and loving so if you are a strong and calm parent, I’m sure you will find me a sweet and loving buddy. So, as those Brits would say ‘Keep calm and carry on’!
