Facts about Taffy

  • Breed: Jack Russell Terrier/Rat Terrier Mix
  • Color: White - With Brown Or Chocolate
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Taffy is a 4 year old, Jack Russell mix. She loves to run and play. She also loves to explore which makes it a bad idea for her to be off leash when not contained in a fenced yard. She is pretty shy towards strangers with cameras, but will gladly perk up for pizza crust. Taffy has been raised around children and has been very patient with them. We think children who understand how to take things slow as she adjusts to a new environment in the beginning will be her new best friend. Taffy has also been raised around other dogs. She likes to romp and play with them too. The same approach holds true here. She needs a slow transition before her really playful side shines through. As for cats, she has been around outside cats but we don't know how she would be with them indoors, although we guess she would be fine. Taffy is pretty quiet in the home, but loves to go out and bark at squirrels in the trees.

Taffy is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, and microchipped. She is solidly housebroken and crate trained although she is also trustworthy without a crate. This is pretty impressive since this girl has been raised as a mostly outside dog. She has been very easy in her foster home and is a great all around dog. She 's so smart and willing to learn anything.

If you would like to meet Taffy, then please complete an adoption application on our website at Her adoption fee is $150.

About PawSwaP of Greater Lafayette

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a rescue/ rhoming service that provides education and assistance for owners in our community to keep pets in their home. When that is not an option or we come across animals in need, we will take them into our foster-based program, work with them, seek all necessary vetting, and find them the perfect home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do various adoption events in the community. If you would like to meet one of our available adoptables, please email us!

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the adoption process is to complete the adoption application on our website. Once we have reviewed the applications, we will contact the potential adopters to arrange a meet and greet. This can take several days depending on the popularity of the animal.
