About Taffy

  • Status: Adopted!
  • Species: Dog
  • Current Age: 12 Years 1 Month (best estimate)
  • Reaction to New People: Friendly
**update** Taffy is really doing awesome in her foster home. She loves the resident dog and is incredible with the children. She just loves children and we think she'd be an awesome family dog, with some older kids to play with in the back yard. She is a cool looking dog and when you meet her in person you'll see what we are talking about. You'll ask yourself, "Why was this dog up for adoption so long?" She has the most pleasant personality, and is on the petite side, just about 30 pounds, and has the most adorable expressions on her face. She is quite a character!

Wait! Stop, go no further!!! Did you take a good look at this face? How about my eyes? Have you ever seen such wisdom in the eyes of a girl as young as me? I didn’t think so!

And my name – Taffy – well it wasn’t given to me without thought. Sweet – isn’t that what comes to your mind when you hear “taffy”. Yep – that was the idea. I’m Taffy.

Now, let’s talk about you and what you are looking for in a new family member. I’m a Jack Russell Terrier/Red Heeler mix so I’m not meant for the couch potato. I need to be active, both mentally and physically. If you are a jogger or like company for your long country walks every day, you’ve found the perfect companion. Got a teenager that would like to dabble in Agility Trials? Wouldn’t you be proud when that Blue Ribbon was handed over?

I’d love to have another fur baby in the family too. I’m partial to boy fur babies – little girls can be so wishy-washy and that can make me cranky at times. We could play together when you are tired or, better yet, we can all play together! I’m assuming you have a fenced in yard for me/us; that is essential – non-negotiable for a JRT owner.

I’m a really good catch, I must remind you, but I don’t come complete with agility training and all my good citizen manners yet. I’m still a baby – not even a year old. I need your help if I’m going to learn what I need to know. My adoption even comes with an Obedience Class included; your choice of three locations. Being a JRT/Heeler, I’m built-in smart so I can do it up right, I promise. My worst habit right now is jumping but I’m quickly learning that people don’t like that very much. Hey, Tigger got rave reviews for his jumping – how was I to know?

So now we are straight on what I expect from you and what you can expect from me. I’m a sturdy, healthy and loving little girl, full of vim and vigor, up to date on my vaccines and heartworm preventative. You will get a certificate to have me checked out at the vet for yourself just to make you comfortable.

Are you up to a fun and active life with me? I hope so because I sure could use a hug!

Taffy is spayed, up to date on rabies, vaccinations, has a bordetella shot, she is on heartworm preventative and flea meds and her adoption fee includes a free first vet visit for a participating vet of your choice.

****Taffy will only be adopted to a family with a fenced yard... and a family with another dog with a matching energy level will be given preference. ****

***Taffy comes with a free obedience class at either All Dawgs Academy in Tonawanda, Canine Academy in Clarence, or Canine Capers in Hamburg.

***Taffy is eligible for our Foster-to-Adopt Program!!!
