Taz is an 8-month old Terrier cross who is being fostered in Crewe, Cheshire. He is a very active young boy who is looking for an active family to take him on adventures. He is full of fun but also loves cuddles and will be a loyal companion to his new family.
People – Taz loves people and is always full of beans to meet people, go on walks or to play. Taz is a young active dog that needs to learn boundaries and also get into a home routine as he has had a lot of disruption in his young life prior to coming into rescue so a home with older children would suit him, or an adult only home
Dogs – Taz loves other dogs, he is a terrier mix so will play quite rough when excited so would need a calmer older dog or a tolerant dog that will teach him how to play with control. Taz lives with a range of breeds and sizes of dogs and gets on with all of them. Taz is currently too young to be neutered so this will need to be done when he is old enough.
Cats – Taz lives with a cat and parrots currently and initially barked at the cat but now ignores him. A dog savvy cat would be fine to live with Taz.
In the home – Taz currently is learning to be house trained, any home should expect a few accidents while he settles and gets into a routine in his new home. Taz likes human company and as he has had a lot of change recently is understandably clingy currently so he sleeps on his fosterers bed and is not left for long as he doesn’t like being left.
Once Taz develops confidence in his routine and gets used to his new owners this will settle but any new home needs to be prepared to work with Taz on this and understand that he will need patience to get him into a routine where he is happy being left for longer periods.
Taz loves toys – he is a typical terrier that will rag toys and loves de-squeaking toys for fun. Out and about – Taz is very loyal dog who is great off lead and walks well on a lead, Taz travels well in the car but will currently cry if you leave the car until you come back, Taz is very well behaved at the vets.
Type of home – Taz needs a home that is looking for an active, cheeky dog and with a family that are willing to work with him to get used to being left and realise that his family will always come back for him so he doesn’t need to worry.
Taz has had a lot of upheaval in his short life so is understandably clingy to people currently. He would need a family with someone home the majority of the day and needs an active family that will take him on adventures as he loves to be out and exploring. Taz would love to have children to play with in the home but also needs to learn boundaries and needs to have space in the home to have calm moments so older children that will understand the need for Taz to have calmer moments would be ideal.
Taz would suit a family with or without existing pets. Taz is a lovely little boy who really loves life and deserves a family that will give him lots of stimulation and fun things to do
Taz is chipped, vaccinated and up to date with his flea and worming treatment. He is too young to be neutered so will be adopted with a neutering contract and a discount voucher will be available. Follow up checks will be done. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet him in his foster home in Crewe Cheshire
