This lovely boy is Taz he’s a Terrier crossbreed approximately 7-8 years old. Taz was signed over into our care as his owner could no longer provide him with the care he needs. Taz is such a lovely old boy, he’s definitely a lap dog and just loves having a cuddle on the sofa. Taz is good all round, he’s good with children, other dogs and cats. Although Taz is friendly with everyone he meets, he is looking for a quiet calm home, he can be quite anxious and he just wouldn’t cope in a busy lively environment, a home with a retired person/couple would be ideal. He could be rehomed with another dog as long as the other dog wouldn’t be mithering him and wanting to play, this worries him, he is currently in a foster home with 2 other dogs and they all just go about their own business basically ignoring each other.
Taz is house trained, he’s great in the house, he tends to spend a lot of his time sleeping either hidden away in a small space (he feels a lot more secure in small spaces) or snoring away on one of the dog beds. Taz is starting to enjoy his walks, he much happier walking in a field with the other dogs in his foster home than he is walking down a busy road, he just tends to do his business then turn around to head for home if he’s walked on a busy road. Taz doesn’t like traveling in the car, he physically shakes and occasionally barks, he finds it all very stressful, he seems to be much better traveling in a crate but still doesn’t enjoy it bless him. Taz loves his food, he is on a senior dried food.
Taz has already had a dental but he has a ‘typical terrier mouth’ so is likely to need future dentals. He has a dental chew each day along with his dried food, he also has some tooth paste. Taz is looking for a quiet calm home where he will be given time to settle in and feel safe in his own time. Going to a new home for Taz will be a very scary experience, he will be quite anxious for the first week or so, he will pace and want to hide and may not want to go for much of a walk and his little tail will be constantly between his legs but he will settle slowly and he will really bond with his new owner, once settled he is a happy little chap who loves a charge around the garden and it’s lovely to see him now wagging his tail in his foster home. Taz has been neutered vaccinated and micro chipped.
