Taz is an 11-year-old red, rough boy and weighs 16 lbs. He lost one of his eyes in a run-in with a nasty raccoon, but Taz does not let that slow him down. He had a great life with his previous family, but due to unfortunate circumstances, they had to give him up for adoption.
Taz is very loving and is a true Velcro Griff. He follows his foster parents around from room-to-room and loves to cuddle on the couch. He is a very happy dog, with his little tail always wagging at full-speed.
Don't let Taz's age fool you either! He is a playful little fella with a very noticeable bounce in his step. Even though he acts and looks young, his adoptive family may have to do certain things to help him out. He likes to eat his food on an elevated platform so he does not have to bend down to eat. Additionally, he is not always able to make it onto the couch by himself, so he would probably love a set of steps or a ramp to help him.
For his age, Taz is healthy. He does have some skin allergies that may be triggered by fleabites or pollen. It will be imperative to keep him flea-free at all times. He will also require good quality food to mitigate any chance of his having an allergic reaction to his diet. His foster family has found that he also does very well on food that contains glucosamine and chondroitin, to help him keep that bounce in his step.
Taz is up to date on vaccinations, is neutered, heartworm-free, and is on flea preventative. He has also had a dental cleaning. Taz is being fostered in Oakland, CA.
If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Crystal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
