Adoptable Pet of the Week: Taz

Say hello to the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week, Taz! This 2-year-old Shepherd/Pyrenees mix is a fluffy ball of fun.

Currently, he’s enjoying snacks in a foster home through Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation and looking for a forever home where he can feel super comfortable.

Here is what Taz has to say about himself:

Hi, I am Taz. Let me tell you all about my vision of my best life as a dog!

I came to northern Virginia from Fayette County down south. I am 2-years-old and have always been a big, fluffy fun guy as far back as I can remember.

In my free time, I enjoy eating snacks and well, really all kinds of food. I also love taking treats gently right from your hand. I am a gentle-dog. I am very smart and will learn or perform for a decent snack. I will hand you my paw; you provide food. Any questions? Are those snacks?

I also love to play with toys. I like all kinds of toys (sometimes I go nuts on cat toys — so watch out!) and am super playful. I also loooove to sniff. I am, and have the biggest sniffer according to the book of dog records. I’m poetic in that I like to take my time making sense of the scents around me. I get happy when I get to go on walks — I workout to stay in shape.

Besides eating, sniffing, walks and toys, I am also into gardening, specifically digging holes where there are none yet. It’s a great hobby! Try it with me ok?

I am looking for a family that has similar interests and will make me feel super comfortable around their neighbors and friends. Due to my size, adults and teenagers are my favorite friends.

Interested in having some fun, getting snacks and being a forever friend with Taz?
