Talley is a lovely boy is looking for a quiet place to enjoy his golden years. He’s an absolutely beautiful dog who will truly enrich the life of his new caretakers.  He’s gentle and would like to spend his days with a human by his side telling him what a good boy he is.

Talley is a funny fellow who has earned his nickname as The King.  He likes things his way and will let you know if things don’t measure up.  He is dog friendly but doesn’t want other dogs visiting him while he eats. . 

This guy has some medical conditions that we think may have been one of the reasons he was found on his own - Talley has a condition known as megaesophagus (ME)  an enlargement of the esophagus causing difficulty swallowing food  - his ME is easily managed with a couple of easy mealtime accommodations.   When we were asked to take Talley from the Tipton County Shelter he was approx. 45 lbs, he’s now a healthy 65 lbs.  He’s developed  spinal stenosis which is not uncommon for a dog his age - he has an odd gait when he walks but not other issues and does not seem to be in pain.

Talley has been neutered, he is up to date on vaccines, is heartworm negative on prevention.

Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.  

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.

Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
