Taj (ADOPTED!) is a hound mix up for adoption at Pets without Parents. He was born on January 18, which makes him about 7 months old. He came into our shelter with his mom, sister and four younger siblings. Everyone has been adopted except for him!


Taj probably doesn’t even realize that his life could get any better. He is such a carefree, happy boy and is content anywhere, even in the shelter. But we want more for him. We want him to have his own forever home, with his own family, and possibly other animals to play with!
If you meet Taj, his happy demeanor is sure to put you in a better mood.  His smile alone could melt your heart! But Taj has more to offer than just his beautiful smile. Taj also is very sweet. He loves to cuddle and to be petted. He is explorative and loves to go on walks to see the world. He walks well on the leash and is a quick learner!  He knows how to sit and comes when you call him. He is even house broken and knows to hold it until he gets a chance to go outside.
Taj LOVES other dogs and is quite a charmer. Other dogs seem to be drawn to him and he loves to play with  everyone he meets. He would make a perfect companion to somebody who already has a dog, or make a great dog park dog! However, since he loves people just as much, he would be happy with just people to play with instead.
Taj is a gentleman. When he walks by the cats in the shelter he knows not to be too pushy, although he does seem to get along with cats as well.  And despite his GIANT tongue, he is polite about not giving too many kisses. He also gets right back into his cage with no problem.
Taj is such a charmer; we are surprised he is still here! If you are looking to adopt, or know somebody that is, come by and visit Taj! He would make the perfect addition to any family. But Taj knows to be a gentleman, so he may not jump around in the cage to get your attention. Ask a staff member if you can get him out so he can show you his full personality!
Taj has been to several adoption events and seems to be comfortable in many new and different environments. He also gets along with all types of people, including kids!

About petswithoutparents

Pets Without Parents, founded in June of 2001, is a non-profit, no-kill, all-breed shelter for dogs and cats. Our mission is to place every pet that enters our shelter into a loving, permanent home; to motivate our local community to support our shelter, its no-kill mission, and spay-neuter efforts through donation, volunteer, and adoption opportunities...until every pet goes home. We strive to create a community that nurtures and respects companion animals, and to someday see that every pet is loved. In order to create such a community, Pets Without Parents functions as a pet adoption shelter, carefully placing pets into forever homes. Additionally, we do everything in our power to reduce the pet overpopulation. Every pet is spayed or neutered before going to his or her new home. We can only accomplish our mission by educating the community and sharing our beliefs that we are creating a better world for these wonderful animals. In 2010, we found homes for 327 cats and 432 dogs (total of 759 adoptions), many of which came from kill shelters. This is a 15% increase from 2009.
