MEET MISS CONGENIALITY--Taffy is a lovable red and white Lab mix about 5 years old. She may not be a classic beauty pageant contestant, but she would definitely walk away with the Miss Congeniality title. Taffy ADORES people--men, women, and children included--as well as cats and her fellow canines. She greets newcomers with a sweet smile, a gentle lick, and a tail wagging hard enough to stir a breeze. Submissive by nature, she goes belly up at the drop of a hat--and if you choose to give her a rub while she's presenting her tummy, all the better. Taffy handles changes admirably. She adapted to her new foster home instantaneously, and when put on a diet and exercise plan, she never complained. Her foster mom reports that Taffy neither drools nor begs, and she loves walking, even when it's cold outside. It became apparent that Taffy rarely had been walked because her paws were sore and tender at first. However, they toughened up quickly and she has grown to love the leash.Other great things about Taffy: She goes in her crate when tired and spends the night there quietly. She rarely barks, even when she sees and hears other dogs barking. She enjoys being next to her human, but can settle down anywhere in the house. She watches your face for signals and wants to earn your praise. She is one of those dogs who is always smiling, always happy, and lifts people's spirits wherever she goes.
