Tiller: 3-year-old male black Lab 70 pounds neutered

Background:“I didn’t need that tail any way…” This guy wound up at a central valley shelter with a badly injured tail that required surgical removal – well mostly. No idea how the tail wound up that way, but the shelter did what they needed to do… and reduced his tail to a lovely stub. He also has a little chuck taken out of one ear. If only he could tell us what adventures he has been on…

What Tiller’s Foster says: Tiller is one happy dog! He enjoys fetching balls and playing with toys. He is getting along well with our dog, wrestling and sharing toys with no problems, and he has been very gentle and just little inquisitive with our cat. He is house trained and crate trained, and is sleeping well through the night after only a few days. He also loves to get pets from his people. He is a clean slate in that he doesn't seem to know any basic commands, but I am sure he will learn with a good training routine. He walks pretty well on leash and we have been taking him for daily walks at the dog park where he is very interested and excited to meet other dogs. He handles greeting strangers, both canine and human alike, very well. Friendly and curious, he is ready to explore the world with you, and will be wagging his little tail again soon.

What Tiller’s Rescue Rep says: Life is looking up for Tiller. We can only wonder what he’s been through. But we will find him a fabulous new forever home. Tiller is great with other dogs and cats. Very affectionate. Nice fetcher too. Would be great in a family with kids.

Medical Information: Tiller is neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative, and current on vaccinations. He is in great health.

Tiller is located in: El Cerrito.

Our volunteers donate their personal time & phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
