My name is Taz and I'm a 10 y/o male Pom mix. I traveled a long way to get here from Miami, FL. Nobody ever came to get me after the hurricane so I packed my bags and headed North in hopes of finding a new family. People tell me I can be a little grumpy. What can I say, I just want to lay around and look handsome. I don't move as fast as I used to or play as much as I once did so if you need a friend to watch Netflix or Judge Judy with all day, I'm your man! Let's face it, I'm a bit lazy when it comes to play time but do enjoy going for long leash walks. I'm not really a lap dog and don't care for cuddling, but if you give me a pillow to sit on next to you while we watch TV, I will be your friend for life. I am house trained and prefer to take my naps in my crate. I have also been neutered, utd on my vaccines, and heartworm negative. I would probably prefer a home with grown-ups and not small children as I am set in my ways and don't want to be poked by little fingers. Do you think you are the person for me? $100 has been donated towards my adoption Fee!
