2-3 years old (approx)
Border Collie mix (28kg)
From the Waitaki District Pound - found wandering and was unclaimed by his owner.
Now in foster care - Dunedin.
Taz was neutered end of April.
Thank you to everyone that has enquired about Taz. He is available for adoption but we really need to ensure it's the right home, please read his details below.
Taz needs someone 100% dedicated to training him further. He's really keen to learn, has switched on really quickly and wants to please. Someone that understands the need for mental stimulation (ideally agility, obedience) as well as physical. Taz needs a firm handler that will provide clear boundaries. He loves to go for rides in the truck but is currently a keen car chaser - careful handling (and training) required for his safety.
He is very good with the foster carers other 4 dogs (male and female), and other dogs he meets when out and about, although is reactive to entire males. He has learned that the cat is part of the pack and respects him. Sleeps overnight in a crate with lots of cosy blankets.
He greets people very enthusiastically and is overall a lovely natured dog with so much potential. Requires older, dog savvy children due to his bouncy nature.
Requires 6ft fencing.
Adoption fee $220
Vaccinated (Parvo/kennel cough)
