In a time when bull breeds are continually discriminated against, nothing is more wonderful than seeing a homeless dog find their people.
This little staffy bull came into care and quickly proved himself to be fabulous with dogs, cats, and the 3 month old baby in his foster home! Taz reiterated why these dogs were known as nanny dogs back in the day. When long-time Staffordshire Bull Terrier lover Robin emailed us from Washington we knew that Taz now Earle had found his home. See his first update below- as you can see by the photo he was more than pleased to become a bed dog!
Now that Iíve had the fabulous, beyond all dreams perfect Taz-Earle for 3 Ĺ weeks, I thought Iíd send another update and some photos.
He is perfect in every way! I love that little tank-dog beyond all measure. I think heís finally settled in and feeling at home because heís expressing himself more fully now. Heís also stopped laying his head on Finís blanket at night and now just cuddles right next to me. And can I just say that his ever so not subtle ďlean on you, soft slow roll rollover to expose his belly for a belly rubĒ move is right up there with the squinty eyes as beyond cute and wonderful?! He loves, loves, loves playing with his toys, but Iím still struggling to find anything thatíll last more than a week (and thatís limiting the toys to when Iím playing with him!). A favorite game is fetch the carrot piece. Itís fetch and hide and seek all in one and the ďtoyĒ is supposed to be eaten so itís a win/win for as long as his daily carrot allotment lasts. And what that boy will do to a vacuum if you donít lock him in the bathroom! Actually, Iíve been leaving him in the bathroom with his doggy bed while Iím at work as he settles in because he doesnít seem to mind (goes in happily and waits patiently with tail wagging when I get home) and heís good at finding mischief that could hurt him if Iím not home. (Made the mistake of having the toaster too close to the counterís edge and he pulled it down on himself. Poor little guy. His height challenge makes the allure of the counters even more irresistible.)
Everyone who has met him loves him. Now that heís settling in, Iím hoping to introduce him to more people (have limited it to one or two people at a time for now).
