Hi! I''m the dog called Tara, and I hope you can be my new person. I just know I''m going to be a wonderful companion for you. I''m currently living in a foster home, but they have some great things to say about me. I''m a high-energy gal, so I would love to go on lots of long walks and have lots of playtime with you in the fenced-in yard. I''m a cuddle buddy, so once I''m all tired out, I''ll be happy to snuggle in the bed with you. I''m a tug-of-war champion, and rope toys are my favorite! I''ll even let you know when I''m ready for belly rubs by nudging you and putting my face next to your face! I am still learning about what that `housetraining` thing is, so I hope you have a flexible schedule and plenty of patience to teach me! I''m just a great girl hoping for an even greater forever home! Speak with an adoption counselor about meeting me. I''m full grown at 74 lbs.
*I have been diagnosed with heartworm disease and will begin treatment soon; please speak with an adoption counselor for details.*

Many adoptions will take approximately 1 hour or more. Adoption requirements and tips to speed up the adoption process: Please be able to provide a valid photo I.D. with your current address (If your I.D. does not reflect your current address, bring a piece of mail with your name and address on it) Be able to prove that you are allowed to have a pet where you live (proof of home ownership or a copy of your rental lease including the specific pet policy) Bring along all members of your household, including dogs for an introduction to a new dog. However, we do recommend meeting with an adoption counselor before involving children in the pet selection process. To avoid longer wait times, we strongly recommended that dog-to-dog meetings take place after 1:00pm. Participate in adoption counseling process to learn adoption guidelines and adoption options.
