Adopted -- Meet Taylor
Hi, my name is Taylor and, if I say so myself, I'm a really great dog. I believe I'm some kind of a hound mix. Mixed with what is anybody's guess. Maybe some terrier? Maybe some shepherd? Who knows. Whatever I am, I'm very sweet and give lots of kisses. When I'm happy my tail goes nonstop. I'm trying to learn the things my foster mom is teaching me. I mastered housebreaking in just 3 days. I'm learning how to sit, down and (selectively) come when called, but I'm getting better at that! I do still need some leash training, so my new family should be prepared to give me some long walks to work on that. I'm looking forward to going to puppy school so that my family can teach me all about how to be the best I can be.
I was found as a stray in rural Kentucky, and before coming to Adopt-A-Pet I might have been an outside dog. When I got to my wonderful new foster home, I didn't know what toys were or what a couch or bed was. Now I'm a couch potato that loves tummy, chest, head and back rubs. Without a doubt, the rubs are my favorite thing. I'll lie on my back for an hour if you'll scratch and rub my chest down to my tummy. The first time I was on the bed was really funny. First I needed help getting on the bed. Then I walked around sniffing the entire bed. I was intrigued by the pillows. I fluffed one up then dragged it to the other side if the bed. I really wasn't sure what it's purpose was. Now, if you let me, I'll lay quietly next to you and enjoy the comfort.
I've become friends with the neighbor dog that I meet every day through the corner of the fence. I also saw the young children across the fence, twice, and my tail didn't stop. I made crying sounds because I wanted to go play with them. Although there are no children or other dogs in my foster home, my foster mom thinks I will be OK with them when that time comes. I have been really calm through the fence now. Children should be old enough and responsible enough to not leave doors open, because I can be a bit of an escape artist if given the opportunity.
I am definitely the kind of dog that will become your best friend. I love being talked to and am a very loving girl. I just want someone to play with me and love me a lot. My foster mom says once I am trained properly, I will become one fabulous pup! Will you be that person? I hope so.
