17/5/20 – Taz still needs a home
9-year-old Taz is a huge, cuddly Malamute teddy bear who is with Love Underdogs in Waltham Abbey, Essex.
Taz is a wonderful old dog who has been kept in a miserable cage all of his life, in a yard, unable to keep dry in the rain and wet season, nor sheltered from the heat in the summer. He has finally been allowed to find a real home now, and Love Underdogs are looking forward to seeing him truly happy.
Taz has the most wonderful nature with people and he hasn’t got a bad bone in his body. He is choosy with other dogs though, particularly with uncastrated males. Anyone adopting him will need to be mindful of this and will need to take care when walking him. He would do brilliantly as your only dog or perhaps with a placid female, provided introductions at the kennels went well. It is Love Underdogs’ policy to place their older dogs in adult-only homes.
Typical of Malamutes, Taz is a tough old boy with a lot of love to give to his people, very loyal and loving, choosy with dogs, and loves the outdoors. You will need to be committed to keeping on top of his grooming as this boy has a lot of hair!
Due to arthritis, Taz won’t want to go for very long walks, but he would love a countryside setting. The most important thing for Taz is a family with Eskimo-breed experience, willing to offer this wonderful boy a lovely retirement home. He needs space and access to the great outdoors, preferably in a rural area. He also needs a confident handler who will be in tune with Taz.
Taz has been castrated and has had a clean bill of health, including comprehensive blood profile. He takes anti-inflammatory medication for arthritis. All Love Underdogs’ dogs are rehomed with a home trial for 2 weeks before a formal adoption. Love Underdogs offer behaviourist support for the lifetime of the dog.
All in all, Taz is a chilled boy who will bring much happiness to his new owners. Do you have a lovely environment for Taz?
