Find your perfect pet with Pet Alert!

No Small Kids
Name: Tater
ID: 41793855
Breed: Retriever, Labrador / Chow Chow
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 5 years 1 month
Size: Large
Location: Awaiting Foster
Foster Reason: Tater is needing a home that can help him learn what it's like to be a confident dog!

Dream Home: Tater will need a home with a securely fenced in backyard. He will also need a home with adults only (preferably just 1, but no more than 2) and little to no visitors coming in and out! It would also be best if there is one dog or no dogs in the home.

About Me: Hello, my name is Tater, and I came to the SPCA of Texas a little over a year ago through a cruelty case along with a slew of other animals. The behavior team at the shelter has been working diligently to build on my socialization and confidence skills, however, the shelter is so stressful, I really struggle to progress more. I am in need of a quiet foster home with a securely fenced yard and no kids to help the behavior team learn more about my behavior and personality in a home environment. The shelter believes I am likely a lab mixed with either chow or shar pei based on my looks, so someone who is familiar with either of these two breeds would be an added bonus!

Special Note: While I'm not yet ready for adoption I am available for foster-to-adopt!
