Meet Tami! Sweet Tami is a friendly, loving, happy, resilient 6-7 year old Mastiff mix. Tami was born on a meat-farm in Korea. They kept her as a breeder, and she lived her whole life in a small cage, producing litter after litter. She was exposed to horrors that you don’t even want to imagine, and has scars from unthinkable abuse. And even after all of that, she wants nothing but to be loved.

If you have ever wanted to give a second chance to an abused dog, Tami is your girl. The first half of her life was torment, and you can help make the second half of her life glorious. She is the easiest dog you will ever meet, and seeing her joy in life will be the best reward you can have

Darling Tami loves people, adores kids, and is great with other dogs. She is gentle, quiet, house-broken, and doesn’t chew things up. She has not been tested with cats, but she would probably be fine. Tami wants nothing more than to be by her foster mom’s side, and to greet everyone who comes to visit.

After Tami was rescued, she was socialized with humans using a lot of treats, so she does have some weight to lose. And she’s already started dropping the pounds in her foster home! Her ideal weight is around 55 – 65 lbs.

At the mill, Tami was dragged by a rope around her neck, so she has trauma around walking on leash. She is slowly learning that a harness and leash are safe, and eventually will be able to go on walks. But for now, she needs a home with a yard, so she doesn’t have to go on leash to potty. She would be great for a busy family with kids, who don’t have a ton of time to walk a dog. She would also be great for an elderly or disabled person who doesn’t want to have to walk her, and just wants a companion to hang out and be loved.  

Tami is being fostered in El Sobrante, Richmond, CA. She is patiently waiting for someone who can give her enough love to make up for her lost years.
