Hi I’m Tango and I am at Quaker parakeet! My previous owner had to give me up because I was too bold and too comfortable running around on the floor chasing the other animals and she was afraid I would get eaten by the dog!
I am very sweet and love to sit on your shoulder while you work and go about household duties. I step up well from my cage most of the time. My foster mama thinks I have a lot more words hidden away because so far I’ve only told her “Good boy Tango!” and “Tango! Tango!”
Unfortunately I am on a seed diet and trying to learn to like this stuff called pellets. I really like fresh fruit and vegetables though- especially raisins! I also feel scared of foot toys, but my foster brothers are showing me there’s nothing to be afraid of.
Like most Quakers, I may choose one person in the home as my favorite. I also would do better in a home with no children (or older children) and one without other animals (although I do get along with my foster brothers who are also parrots). Will you give me a forever home please???
