WICC Pet of The Week

WICC Pet of The Week

Six month old Taz is looking for his home. Before you apply, beware: he has some things in common with his namesake of the Tasmanian Devil! Well, maybe not  really, but as a working breed dog (Australian cattle dog and shepherd), Taz won’t be a good fit for every home. Taz needs a lot of exercise and a job. If he is not given enough to do to tire his brain and body he will choose his own activities and you may not approve of them.

Taz is a cuddly boy who gets attached to people who bond with him through training and play.
