Taffy has had a tough time since he arrived at the home a few weeks ago. He had a catastrophic injury to his tail, and as it proving impossible to heal and was causing him a lot of distress, after two weeks of bandages and dressings and the dreaded cone of shame the vets advised there was a high risk of infection and they recommended amputation. Taffy still has to wear the cone of shame whilst he is in his kennel but the wound is now healing and when he comes out for his walkies and garden playtime he swaps the cone for a dashing orange bandana!
Taffy is a fabulous boy, energetic and playful, and he has hopped over a 4 foot fence with ease, so a secure garden will be a must for this little athlete!
He also has a very soft side, and loves nothing more that gentle tummy rubs and cuddles!
Taffy is lively as a box of frogs and can go from nought to 60 in seconds!
Taffy has met a few of our residents, and has superb doggy manners! He has helped a few of our more anxious newbies settle, and loves stepping out with other dogs, so Taffy could live with another dog.
For more info or it you'd like to meet him please contact the staff at the Hom on 01633 290902 or pop in for a visit. Opening hours 11 till 4, closed for lunch 1-2. Please note the Home is closed to visitors on Sundays.
I have been lucky to walk Taffy twice. He walks lovely on the lead and doesn’t pull at all. He loves other dogs and meeting other people he is just generally a very sociable doggy.
He is has a very sweet nature and loves a cuddle and a tickle.
He would need to go to a home where he will be walked everyday. But he is fabulous walking companion and great company. Can you tell I am a real fan of Taft as is everyone he meets when your out walking :-)
