A volunteer writes: With the most adorable ears framing his gorgeous face and piercing amber eyes, I fell in love in a NY Minute! I first met Taz in his group play and although he’s only a puppy he already has the important job of HELPER DOG!! He loves other dogs, play bows to solicit play, but is never pushy. He’d love a home with a canine sibling or two (or three). Stunning to look at, he’s slender, wears a gleaming brown coat (get your sunglasses out) and his tail never stops wagging. Surrendered to our care as his owner no longer has time to care for him we’re told that he’s housetrained, has interacted with a 7 year old child and was playful, and sometimes doesn’t recognize when a dog doesn’t want to play as he always does! He enjoys playing with toys, was bathed once a month, and slept on a chair or in his crate at night. He loves company wagging his tail to solicit attention. Taz is a young boy with nice energy, composed and sweet, happy to be pet, happy to meet other dogs, and happy to make new friends. We played a bit but when other dogs came by he gave me up like a hot potato much more interested in engaging with his kind. Come meet out hunky Taz today as he’s ready to begin his happily ever after today.
Taz is described as playful, eager, and affectionate. He has lived with his owner for the past 3 months. He lived with adults only but has interacted with a 7 year old child. He was very playful with the child allowing all handling. Taz has interacted with other dogs but his owner describes him as too eager to play. He will stop and stare at them and then quickly approach them to play. His owner stated that he doesn’t recognize when another dog doesn’t want to play. There have been incidents where other dogs had become aggressive while playing and Taz would either run off or lie still and cower.
Taz tends to follow his owner everywhere in the house. He enjoys being petted and will attempt to climb onto his owner’s lap to relax. Taz is accustomed to being bathed at home at least 1x a month and he will sit calmly once he realizes he can’t get out of the tub. Taz will allow his owner to touch him and take food from his mouth while he is eating. Taz is confined to one area in the home with a baby gate. Taz will whimper for a while when he is left alone. His owner also noticed that he has chewed on parts of the wall in random places of the home. When there are visitors in the home, he will greet them wagging his tail soliciting attention.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Taz understands the commands “sit, down, paw and stop.” Taz is house trained but has had accidents when left too long. He is walked 2x a day for about 30 minutes at a time. He would sometimes be walked off leash but only when his owner is carrying his yellow squeaky ball; it keeps his attention. He was accustomed to going to the dog park every weekend. Taz enjoys playing with squeaky toys, rubber balls and chasing lasers. He was fed Blue Buffalo dry dog food. He sleeps on a chair inside of his owner’s room or his crate.
Taz displayed a soft body and wagging tail when he was approached. He allowed petting all over. He was collared, scanned for a microchip(negative) and photographed.
Taz came into our center as an owner surrender. It is reported he has interacted with a 7 year old child, playful and allowing all handling/petting. It is reported Taz does not mind if anyone touches his Food, Toys, Treats. Owner states Taz is eager to play with other dogs and visited the dog park every other weekend. Owner reports Tax has chewed on parts of the wall but it should be noted Taz was confined to a small area of the home at all times. During intake, Taz had a soft body and wagging tail, allowed all handling. He was hyper and friendly during his initial medical exam. Taz allowed his head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, whining, tail wagging. He stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, low whine, ears back, mouth closed. Taz initially followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, but played along after second pass, running/jumping/grabbing leash. He required a reset by walking towards the exit of the room in order to relinquish leash. Taz did not pull his paw back on both Squeeze attempts. Taz playfully engaged with Toy, but relinquished it easily. When off leash with other dogs, Taz is playful and solicitous. He offers bows to solciit play and engages in wrestling play.The Behavior Team feels Taz would do well with an Experienced adopter. He will benefit from obedience classes to learn leash manners. Taz will require daily mental and physical stimulation in the forms of daily walks, runs, exercise, play, as well as durable toys such as kongs and nylabones. We recommend crating Taz when no one is home to eliminate any destruction of household items as previously reported.
