Meet Taffy. This is a sweet little girl who, along with Trooper (also posted), has decided that attacking the neighbor's chickens is a fun sport. Since Taffy's current family does not want to or is not able to contain her, she must find a new home. We know that with her rat terrier and Jack Russell breeds there is always a possible instinct to not mix well with livestock. That doesn't, however, make her a bad dog. In fact, Taffy is a total sweetheart with everyone and everything else.

Taffy is about 4 years old and full of energy. 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. The current children in her family start around 4 years old. She is really great with them and never aggressive. She does try to get away from them if they want to pick her up too much, but we don't really blame her for that. Taffy has also been raised around other dogs. She likes to romp and play. As for cats, she has been around outside cats but we don't know how she would be with them indoors.

Taffy will be fully up to date on vetting prior to adoption including spay, up to date on shots, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Taffy has been kept mostly outside or in a garage and has been reliably housebroken. She has never been crated but has been confined to a pen, although she quickly learned how to squeeze under it.

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.
