Taz is a 6-year-old terrier mix who came to us from Asbury Park. His family was forced to give him up because their landlord wouldn’t permit him to live inside the house. This family loved Taz, and wanted to build him outdoor accommodations so that he could stay with them, but that was not possible. They were heartbroken that they had to give Taz up, but they knew it was best for him.
Taz might be shy at first, but once he gets to know you he is a total snuggle bug. He enjoys walks on the beach and will take every opportunity to go for a dip in the water, too. Taz enjoys hikes in the park as well as good old-fashioned play in the yard. He is not picky about his toys either – squeaky toys, balls and tug of war toys are all acceptable, as are sticks from the yard!! Taz is a smart boy who knows “sit”, “paw”, and “speak” and will show off each of them if you give him a treat.
Taz has been lucky enough to have lots overnight visits with his favorite volunteer friends who have nothing but wonderful things to say about him. They have indicated he is housetrained, walks well on leash, and is a perfect gentlemen in the home. They also said he loves to cuddle and give kisses, and he smiles a lot. They said he is the “perfect houseguest”!!! We’ve just found out that Taz LOVES teenage girls – he follows them everywhere, adoringly!
And if all of that was not enough Taz also likes other dogs! We really cannot understand why he is still here since he is such a great boy!
Here I am having fun with my friend Brutis:
