Spice up your life with Taco!

Hola! My name is Taco. I’m an active niño with undeniable love and loyalty for my people. I’m a 1.5-year-old, 35-pound Bull Terrier. I was recently relinquished to TAP when my owner could no longer provide me with the care that I deserve. I am deaf and have some vision impairment (pending a consultation with the Ophthalmologist). The beginning of my life may have been a little bit messy, but I’m still hopeful that we can taco ‘bout a bright future together!

I’m a playful pup with plenty of spicy energy. I love to go on long walks, hikes, play near the water, fetch… you name it! I also love mentally stimulating activities like working through a rolled-up towel or treat puzzles. I’m “nacho” average pooch and I love keeping busy both physically and mentally. I love all humans and have done well with the kids that I’ve been around. However, I am not a fan of other dogs or cats. I’m protective of my people and it’s best if I’m a solo pooch. At the end of the day, I’m a loving goofball who brings his people so much joy (not unlike a taco!).

Not to brag, but I’m a super smart dude. I am bathroom, house, and leash trained. I have been working with a professional trainer, Deb of Your Inner Dog https://www.yourinnerdog.com/ and made a ton of progress!! I’ve quickly picked up on all commands that I’ve been taught and my foster says that I can learn anything! I am a big fan of snacks and get protective over my meals. I get a bit of mild separation anxiety, but it seems like boredom and pent-up energy are my real issues. I may get into some trouble if left alone, so it’s important that I have appropriate chew toys and that I’ve gotten my exercise before you leave.

My ideal furever casa is one that enjoys the spice of life as much as me! If you enjoy being active and never bored, I’m your guy. I would thrive with a yard to run around in and without other pooches. I’d love to continue my training so that I can be absolutely spec-taco-lar. TAP can recommend an amazing specialist trainer! So what do you say? Let’s meet and I’ll guac your world!

My adoption fee is $350 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip. If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application

The Animal Pad recognizes that adopting a dog with special needs can be challenging. Taco’s adoption package includes TWO FREE sessions with our partner trainer Deb Bauer from Your Inner Dog (https://www.yourinnerdog.com/) to help him acclimate to his new environment. Deb is a world-renowned expert with blind and/or deaf dogs. She teaches people how to communicate effectively with their visually and/or hearing-impaired dogs to teach them effective life skills, new tricks, and to ensure a happy and wonderful quality of life. She can work with you no matter where in the world you are, and has worked with Taco during his time at The Animal Pad. She is committed to setting everyone up for success during this new life change!
