I would like to introduce you to Taz, he is Stones Detroit’s Dog of the Week. I’m not sure where to start with Taz. I have been fortunate enough to have spent some time with him and he has a special place in my heart.
He is a big, loyal guy that has had a pretty tough life in the few short years that he has been alive. Taz has a lot of scars on his face and some believe that he may have been a bait dog. One thing that Last Day Dog Rescue is certain of, he was a stray that somehow survived Michigan’s harsh winter while on the streets. When Taz was first brought to his foster, he was very fearful of strangers especially men. With a lot of hard work he has turned a corner and is a very loving guy. As you can see in the videos, Taz loves people and would really love for a family to welcome him into their home.
My personal experience with Taz has been wonderful. Due to lack of fosters, Taz has been placed with a kennel that works with the rescue. I take my four year old daughter with me throughout the week to give the dogs some exercise. We walk them, play with them and show them some love and affection. Taz is wonderful! I decided to take him for a run one afternoon and he did great. He would really be a perfect match for an active family. What really won me over was how great he is with my daughter. He never jumps on her, he is quite gentle. He does like to smother her with kisses and his tail never stops wagging.
Taz is approximately three and a half years old. He gets along with cats but would do best as the only dog in the home. He has lived with children ranging from four months old to eight years old and he absolutely adores them. Best of all, he loves to run and play in the sprinkler.
If you would like to learn more about Taz and his really cool cow spots or learn how you can foster or volunteer with Last Day Dog Rescue, please click here. If puppies are more your speed, there are a few litters that will be ready for adoption soon. A common misconception is that there are never any puppies available through rescues and that couldn’t be further from the truth. I will have more puppy updates very soon.
