Notes: altered, hasShots, housebroken, noCats
Sunset Animal Rescue requires that the yard area, for this dog,is completely surrounded by a STURDY fence. If you are looking for a bundle of love and kisses, TACO is your boy! He has the cutest personality, never meeting a stranger. His hair is on the wirey side, but curls all down his back. Taco has mustaches and a little beard! He is definitely a terrier and is long legged but just the right size, not too big and not too small. A great size for children. He just needs his own children! This little black bundle of joy is living proof that no matter how badly an animal has been mistreated, they still will give unconditional love. How I wish he could talk to us and tell us just exactly what happened to him! He has obviously belonged to someone who loved him at one time in his life. We found him abandoned, in the SC mountains, scrawny and eating bugs and who-knows-what to stay alive. We took him in the cabin and started feeding him. He was amazed at having dog food to eat, so he must have been fed only table scraps. The reason I feel he had been in a home, at some time, is that he was basically housebroken without us doing anything. As long as we let him out at intervals he did not have accidents. His only problem was if he was scared suddenly, he would piddle, but I feel if he became part of a family that he could trust, that would cease. He is being fostered in a boarding facility in his own run. But he has buddies all around him in other runs, and he really likes that. I almost named him Happy because he is always so glad to see visitors and will play for as long as you have the energy to play with him. He always looks like he is smiling! Kisses are given freely! He is still skinny, but is about 28 lbs Because of his activity level he will, most likely, always be lean. All vaccines are up to date, he is neutered, and will be micro-chipped before going to a new forever home. We have worked with him on lead,and he gets so excited to have the attention, It would be fun for his new family to take him to classes and I think he would catch on quickly. He MUST have a sturdy fence to contain him in the yard, especially since he was found wandering in the mountains .Adoption donation for Taco is $200.00.Is this precious boy a good fit for your family?
