She's had a rough go lately, changing homes (including a three-week stint of a shelter staffer fostering her) but she's adjusting well to her new pack. Her eyesight and hearing seem to be failing a bit, and her joints are stiffened up, but she still enjoys getting out for a walk and plowing through the tall grass. Her nose sure works great, and I'm contemplating getting her into a bit of nosework to help her gain confidence.
She is really cute and looks like my dog Marty. I think it is so wonderful you adopted Taffy , I don't think there are many people that would do that. Maybe you could hide some treats around the house for Taffy to find, or would that cause a fight with your other dogs?
