It was hard to find a breed to describe Tater (also known as Sweet Tater and Tater Tot) because of her distinctive eyes which are a beautiful, piercing yellow color. Her ears are also very different - looks like they tried to stand up like a Shepherd and then decided to lay down like the Labrador Retriever.
Tater's date of birth is 4-15-16. She weighs about 50# and is the size of a typical Labrador. Tater has the boundless energy of a young dog and loves to play with her brother Bojangles. She is very reserved and shy of strangers so Tater will need a family who can work with her to bring out her personality and introduce her to all the wonders of the world she has not experienced.
Tater has to be an outside dog at her foster home but she will only be adopted to a family who will make her an inside dog and part of the family. She is used to a crate and stays in one on an enclosed porch when the weather is inclement. Tater learns quickly and loves to please so her housetraining should not take long. She also will need work on her leash training.
Tater lived in a pen with many other dogs. She is inquisitive about cats but will leave them alone when told to. She has not been around children but she probably would do well with older children. She is rather rambunctious and might knock down toddlers and small children.
Tater has been spayed, tested negative for heartworms and has received all of her vaccinations.
