FUN FACTS/BRIEF BIO:  Tarmac is a wiggly bundle of energy who is quite possibly the happiest dog you will ever meet. Don’t let your eyes deceive you, while everything about him says puppy, he’s actually around two years-old. His constant wiggling just goes to show that he’s retained that playful puppy spirit. Tarmac would flourish in an active home with a family who shares his love for new adventures. Endlessly curious and eager to please, he hasn’t met a person, dog, or toy that he doesn’t like. Tarmac will enthusiastically greet you every time you come home with a full body wag and warm hug. Is this the perfect pup you’ve been waiting for? If so, fill out an application at
