Tampa FL: 8/19 update. Tater was reclaimed by adopter who dumped him day before RE: Urgent. Rescue needed for Tater the Lab mix. Adopter dumped him at high-kill shelter!

8/19 Tater was reclaimed by the adopter. This must have been a bad experience for Tater to go to the high-kill shelter for a day. He had been there last Fall for some time and was pulled in the nick of time before ptd. If new details are made known about his future with the so-called adoptive family or whether he is available for rescue, I will update here.

Very urgent need for rescue, adoption or foster. The adopter dumped Tater and Precious at Hillsborough County Animal Control 8/17/16. That is where they were impounded before. They must be in terrible shock.
Here is the Petharbor link for Tater. The adopter called him Sam:

Call Gulia at 813-263-five five 31 with any questions, email her at, or message her on Facebook: 

Tater is a great 6 years young mix, around 75-80 pounds, seeking a good home. He is great with people, including kids. A great companion dog, friendly, playful and happy.

He was rescued from Hillsborough County Animal Services not too long ago. Like most dogs, he needs daily walks. Loves to swim! He is housebroken. Loves to snuggle, loves to fetch toys, and - particularly a great swimmer.

Another great thing about him, he is not a barker. He will only bark when it matters. He is microchipped, altered, and Heartworm negative.

Tater does pull a little on a leash so will need to go to an experienced home. This big boy was listed as a Retriever mix and has a drive to hunt, so no cats, no small dogs - also no alpha dominating dogs please.  He will only go to an approved home. Gulia does home checks and vet checks. A small re-homing fee does apply.

Here are directions to Petsmart on Causeway in Brandon FL where Tater sometimes makes an appearance at the adoption center.
