Taffy came to us from an abusive/neglectful situation. She was tethered outside and the tether was so tightly wrapped up around one of her hind legs she was screaming in pain. A concerned neighbor called Animal Control. They came out immediately and took her to a vet who cut the tether off. Her leg was very swollen at the time but with medication (antibiotics and pain meds) and rest, she has fully recovered. Taffy is as sweet as can be and loves to get her belly rubbed. She loves hugs and attention. She isn't fully house-trained because she lived outside and didn't learn house manners so she will need someone who can help her in that area. Because of this we feel that she needs an adopter who isn't gone much during the day. She is doing a good job at her foster home but can have accidents so they can keep an eye on her. She needs a fenced yard and an all-adult home. She loves the big bed and loves to curl up under the covers. At this time, we feel like she would do best as an only dog (as long as her adopter doesn't work) because she can be possessive of her bed and her blankets with other dogs. Taffy's vision is limited. ****Applicant should be willing to drive to Ellicott City, Maryland (10 miles south of Baltimore) to meet and adopt Taffy. Her adoption fee is $275.****
