Tako is a misunderstood dog that, more than anything, needs good humans to see beyond his exterior to the dog that he is inside and treat him well.
Tako was one of the famous Bukit Batok puppies who lived on the hill near Bukit Batok MRT station. Read here.
Rescued with his siblings when he was just a few weeks old from deep inside the forest, he was adopted when he was 3 months old. He was then surrendered by his owner in 2019 when Tako was about 6-7 years old.
Tako comes from a line of feral dogs and thus, has very little trust in humans. His entire litter of siblings have been known to show aggression with people and dogs. He is presently in a commercial boarding facility as it is near impossible to find a foster home for him. He would greatly benefit with an experienced foster who can help him get over his trust issues with humans. If you are experienced in handling dogs like Tako and would like to foster, or better yet, adopt him, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
