Rescue of the Month

July 2008 ~ Meet Taffy

Gender: Female

Age:  13 years

Location:  West Virginia

Rescue Group:  Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue
and Sanctuary, Inc.

Out of State Adoptions:  Yes


Bio:  Thirteen-yr-old Taffy has been with rescue for over two years now.  She is a very pretty, totally housebroken sweetheart of a dog who made her way here after her owners moved to a new house without the fence she was used to, and she decided to make the entire neighborhood her own!  Taffy has lived successfully with dogs here at the Sanctuary, and did well with the visiting dogs at her prior home, so we fully expect that she would do fine with mild mannered canine housemates.

Although Taffy is now about 13 years old, she is not a slow, old dog.  She still has a lot of vim and vigor, and other than a low thyroid (easy, cheap medications), and a few seasonal allergies (which are now controlled with an inexpensive antihistamine), she appears to be in excellent overall health.

Taffy is very talkative and will chatter away telling you all about her day. She loves attention, still likes to go for a walk, and would really love to have a home of her own to live out her remaining years.

This is a wonderful dog who would reward anyone who adopted her with love and loyalty.
