Taffy's Story...
I’m Taffy. I don’t know why my foster mom named me Taffy, I think I’m a diva and should have a diva name like Princess, Bella or Mimi. She said something about my colors reminding her of a Siamese cat and Taffy being a cat-like name? Whatever, all I know is that I am being loved and cuddled with more than I’ve ever been before. I’m kind of pushy with my foster mom when I want something, I’ve found that if I just lay down right in front of her and show my belly, not much is more important than loving on me. When Tiny Paws found me, I was an owner-surrender at a local High-Kill shelter. I don’t quite know what that means, but I do know that I have never felt so loved than when my foster mommy holds me in her arms. That’s the kind of forever home I want to find, here I get to sleep inside on a big cushiony bed, lay around on the couch next to my foster mommy and eat really yummy food. There are several other dogs at my Foster Mom’s house, I kind of like having brothers and sisters to have around, but I’m not quite used to how they play – it’s really confusing to me and can be greedy with food so it would be best for me to be the only dog.
I’m used to being outside by myself and they are all used to laying on the couch cuddled together, and then they play with toys and then each other then back to toys. I just like to sit back and watch them, maybe soon I will feel comfy enough to jump in and play too. At my foster mommy’s I hang out inside in a crate until my foster mommy comes home from work, just like all my foster mommy’s dogs do. The first day I was sooo ready to get out! And then I got used to it and really like the security I feel in it. It has also really helped me make sure my potty goes where its supposed to – outside! I like to bark and squeak at my foster mommy until she picks me up and tells me hello. I think She loves it but calls me goofy-girl. I also like to follow her around and then just lay down right in front of her, Its kind of funny, normally she just picks me up and carries me which is really what I want, Did I mention I’m meant to be a spoiled Diva?

. Again, I don’t know what that means but my foster mommy promised me she would find me the best home possible. I am a very petite girl and weight about 10 lbs (but need to put on some weight), I have a thinner coat that means I need to be brushed every day. Which I love to be pampered so I’m cool with that! Everyone tells me that I am just the most beautiful girl they’ve ever seen. I get a lot of “Awws and OH How sweet is she?!?” I really just want a family to love me and keep loving me and caring for me the way my foster mommy has.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Taffy, a New Milford Pekingese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pekingese for sale in New Milford, or seeking a Pekingese dog from a breeder in New Milford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in New Milford already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a New Milford breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pekingese breeders who help with Pekingese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in New Milford paves the way for another one to be saved.
