What is a Tamaruke?

The Tamaruke is a unique breed of dog which has been Professionally, Selectively and lovingly developed for suitability as a Companion pet and Therapy Dog. (subject to training standards)

The Tamaruke has been selectively developed for consistency and suitability – and not for the Show Ring to compete for ribbons.

The Breed Standard – Loyal,  intuitive and trainable temperament, non-shedding Fleece coat which demonstrates no typical “doggy Odour”, Hypoallergenic and easy maintenance

The Tamaruke’s friendly temperament and natural intelligence make them ideal family, therapy and assistance dogs.

Our Belief is that a dog should be suitable as a companion and be bred to the highest standard possible as a human companion – not bred to compete for ribbons in a show ring
