Taz was originally brought to CT Humane Society from an animal control probably about 2 years ago. I don't know how he ended up at animal control, but we took him from them. He was with us at CT Humane for quite a long time awaiting his forever home. While at CT Humane, he was the doggy ambassador. If we wanted to know if another dog liked dogs, we'd introduce him to Taz because Taz loved everyone!
He got adopted out to a home........but was brought back for a few reasons - which were no fault of his own. He was with us for a few more months and then in February of 2011, he got adopted out to a single gal. I kept in touch with her periodically and she just loved him and spoiled him. They went hiking very frequently and we were so happy he finally found his forever home!
In October, he was surrendered to our CT Humane headquarters. We COULD NOT believe it! Apparently, the owner lost her job and couldn't afford him anymore. I couldn't bear for him to be in the shelter environment anymore and we arranged for him to be transferred down to the Humane Society where I volunteer, so I could work with the behaviorist to introduce him to our dogs.
Well, long story long.......he is now our 4th dog (possibly temporarily). He's doing pretty well, but he doesn't know how to play gently. He's solid as a rock and he 'nudges' our other three, who don't really appreciate it! So, I will try to work with him at home and try and find a permanent forever home for him, where he can be the only dog or be matched with a dog that meets his energy level.
But, in the meantime........he's now a Lovello and we'll give him all the love and care and exercise that he needs!!
Here's a few shots of Taz and Buddy:
