Hi there, my name is Tiago. When I first arrived at Dogtown I saw myself as a bit of rough-ridin gangsta. I was a nothing but skin and bones and my attitude was that I “dont need no one for nothing!” I grew up on the streets and I had to always have my own back and look out for myself. But that is now a thing of the past. I still see myself as a gansta but I must admit living the life of luxury at Dogtown has made me a bit of softy.

I like to think of myself a diamond in the rough. I have some “issues” that kinda followed me through my life which makes it hard for most humans to get me but I am working on those issues and my trainer is working even harder to make sure that one of these days I can be more diamond than rough :)

I do get along with other dogs so when I am ready to be adopted I would like to have a fur-sibling to keep me company.  At the moment I really enjoy going on the group classes and just observing from a distance. I am a clever boy and I do learn fast.

I really like playing with balls and if there is not a ball in my garden, I tend to carry around a rock, which is not ideal, but it’s ok, Wilson and I are cool like that 😉

I will check in with you guys from time to time to update you on my progress but for now, why not show a brother some love and sponsor me while I transform into the dog I was always meant to be.
