1. And the BEST THING about Taffy?? She’s AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION!!
Taffy, a little Jack Russell terrier*, was turned in to a local shelter, where intake photos showed an overweight, scared, subdued little couch potato. She tested positive for heartworms and was on her way to euthanasia.
But little Taffy was just suffering from some bad neglect. She was rescued by Friends of Rescue and welcomed into a foster home, where her real problem was discovered: She wasn’t obese at all, she was extremely wormy! The intestinal parasites were treated thoroughly and she was spayed, then she began her heartworm treatment.
What a makeover! Once Taffy began feeling better, she turned into a healthy, sparkling little terrier! She trimmed down and regained her zippy love of life. No couch potato here! She is a typical Jack Russell about 3 years old, weighing about 18-20 lbs., and she loves sniffing in the backyard for squirrels and chipmunks. She’s alert and ready to investigate anything, but is not very barky. She gets along great with other dogs and manages to ignore the cats (most of the time). She is super friendly and people are her favorite thing!
If you’re looking for a small, bright, lively little girl who can go with you on walks or snuggle with you on the sofa, Taffy may be your girl!
Taffy is still in the final stages of her heartworm treatment. While she’s waiting to be retested, she can be with your family as a foster-to-adopt – sort of like “lease-to-own.” FOR will continue to supervise the treatment and pay Taffy’s veterinary costs while she settles in with her new fostering family. At the end of the heartworm treatment period, she will be retested at FOR’s expense and when confirmed negative, the adoption can be completed and she’ll be yours forever!
Taffy is spayed and current on rabies, distemper, parvo and bordetella vaccinations. She’s been microchipped and is ready to meet her new family! If you’re interested in meeting sweet little Taffy, email info@FORrescue.net and ask about her. She is fostered in Huntsville, Alabama, and until the final testing for the heartworm treatment, will only be fostered/adopted within the greater Huntsville-Madison County area.
*We do not know if she’s purebred, but she certainly could be! Maybe when she’s YOUR dog, you can get her DNA tested!
