Tayo is a 6 year old, 38 lb. spayed female in Waterbury, VT.

Tayo cares about her people more than anything! She is incredibly smart and will give you 100% of her attention the moment she hears her name. This makes her easy to train and a joy to walk and hike with, on or off leash. While she is willing to hit any trail and explore, she is just as happy to lounge in a sunny spot on the porch and watch the world go by. She prefers quiet spaces and gets a little anxious around loud noises and crowds.

 

If you are in Tayo's club -- person, cat, dog, or chicken -- you are there for life, but it takes her a little while to warm up to new faces. When she meets someone new, giving her space is best, and she will be asking for pets in no time. She also likes her space initially with new dogs and will show some fear aggression when approached too quickly. This looks like a quick snap and bark to say "back off a little." This is also how she responds to young children that startle or corner her, and this has resulted in a minor bite with our toddler. Although Tayo can be managed around children with supervision, it is a lot to ask of her and her family to be around kids all the time. She would be most successful with older teenagers and adults.

 

Tayo is truly the best girl! We wish we could keep her in our home forever, but her anxiety around young children and aggressive reactions toward them has led to our need to rehome for the safety and well-being of everyone.

 

She deserves a home that can allow her to roam freely, snuggle up to her people, and be active and playful. Her ideal new home would be in a rural area or quiet neighborhood with older teens, adults, cats (she has had quite a few and loved them lots) or dogs with easygoing personalities. If you think your home would be a match, please reach out!

Tayo is in Waterbury, VT.
