Needs
I'm Taffy, Adopt Me!
Catahoula Leopard Dog Mix | Senior | Female

Nine-year-old Taffy is an affiliative, wiggly girl. She approaches people and dogs with a wagging tail and politely greets everyone. She enjoys getting pets while leaning against her favorite people and hanging out outside with other dogs. She would do well with anyone that can give this sweet girl plenty of love. Taffy has a positive history with other dogs. We recommend she does not go into a home that has cats or small animals. She currently weighs 52 pounds.Taffy's adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor.

All dogs benefit from training! ARF was named 'Best in the East Bay for Dog Training' in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 by Diablo Magazine. All adopters receive a $50 discount off their first class.

Taffy's adopter must be at least 18 years old with valid state-issued identification. ARF encourages family members to participate in the adoption process, especially children and family dogs. Please visit ARF's web site for information on adoption and to view more cute canines.
