Tango is an impressive German Shepherd dog, currently living at the Berlin Animal Shelter and looking for a new home.

The animal shelter in Berlin is teeming with dogs, cats, rabbits, mice, guinea pigs and much more: about 1,400 animals live there – and they hope for a new home. So does Tango: Want to give your dog a chance?

Why are animals abandoned? It’s hard to say: many are probably overwhelmed with care and fantasize about living together to be easier or at least different. It is a good thing that there are a number of animal shelters in Germany that look after and take care of these poor creatures.

But this is not always: there are too many animals – that is why such stations should be a temporary place of residence. But you can help: Wouldn’t you love to give a dog, cat or small animal a chance and give them a loving environment? We regularly present you to residents Animal shelter in Berlin. Today: Dog Tango is looking for a new home.

Berlin animal shelter residents are looking for a home – today: Dog Tango

Tango’s past fate or past will always remain uncertain, because the handsome dog has been found. When we meet him, the majestic man seems a little insecure, and he is also worried over and over again. This suggests that he did not always have the best experiences with people, to say the least. Tango may also have been treated very harshly.

How lovely to see he loves his caregivers more than anything once he melts. The German Shepherd also expresses this with a very strong protective instinct. Tango responds well to games – although he can become arrogant at times and even disrespectful once he has gained confidence. In this regard, attending a good dog school is a prerequisite for channeling your Tango’s protective instinct and energy in an orderly manner.

Tango is very alert and not a residential dog

Active people with experience with dogs and who live perfectly with their homes and gardens in a rural area, but certainly have plenty of time for common activities, would be ideal for a handsome man. Unfortunately, Tango is not suitable for an apartment. He is very alert, which is typical for shepherd dogs, but is also very aggressive towards strangers and dogs.

So children should not live in the house. For walking and outdoor activities, a Tango must wear a muzzle. If you want to get to know a beautiful dog that probably has a sad past, you should be prepared for several visits to the animal shelter in Berlin. After that, the mediation will be accompanied by a dog trainer.
