Facts about TATER

  • Breed: Shih Tzu Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
UPDATE ON TATER: A lot has happened to Tater since he first came to BAM. His alert foster mom, Irene, noticed some things that didn't seem right. Turns out Tater had diabetes and yeast infections that were causing him to be miserable. We took him off the adoptable list until we could figure out his health needs and get him better. Tater has lost a lot of weight now and is in perfect condition, his diabetes is under control and his yeast infection is almost all gone. As an added precaution, he has started a desensitization program for allergies. He is ready for his adoptive home at this time. Adoptive family must be willing to continue his insulin injections. Tater has been diagnosed with Cushings Disease but the vet does not feel he needs treatment for that at this time since he's currently doing so well and is happy.

Tater would do best in a home with no male dogs and where he doesn't have a lot of steps to negotiate as he did suffer an injury to his front foot at one time and steps are difficult for him. In addition, he has some depth perception problems. Goes up stairs fine but has difficulty going down them.

To meet Tater, contact Irene at 435-635-2687. His adoption fee is $100. Tater is eligible for the Seniors Helping Seniors Program.

About Because Animals Matter

About Our Rescue Group...

BAM is a nonprofit, animal welfare group dedicated to reducing animal abuse and neglect through education. We also help support our local shelters by taking animals into foster care. BAM does not have a shelter or public facility. All of our animals stay in homes of caring individuals who volunteer their time to help socialize and train them so they are ready for their new families. We are willing to transport our animals any where in the US if the family is the right fit.

Donations can be made made on Facebook and at our web page.

Come Meet Our Pets...

BAM has adoption events every month in S.W. Utah. Watch Facebook and our web page for dates and location. We do not have a facility and all of our pets are lovingly cared for in private foster homes. Arrangements to see the pet you are interested in much be made with the foster parent.

Our Adoption Process...

Adopting a forever friend can be easy. Just call or e-mail and we can make arrangements for a personal visit. Phone lines are open between 9am-4pm, if no one is available be sure to leave a detailed, clear message with name and phone number. Our animals are healthy, up to date on their shots and spayed or neutered. Adoption fees range from $0 to $200. This may differ depending on breed and the age of the dog. Adoption fees cover the costs for spay/neuter, shots and some training provided while the animal is in foster care.
