T.A.G. was founded by Karen Wren after she visited Turkey for the first time in 2002 when she witnessed the horrific living conditions animals were forced to deal with in Turkey day in and day out.

Duman - available for adoption



 Bull Mastiff. He is not neutered but will be before adoption.

 He is around 4 or 5 yrs old we're guessing!  Very gentle dog but not sure how he is with cats because he kind of barked and wanted to run after the cats!   He was good with one male neutered dog that he met and they were playing and running together.  
He is clearly big and strong dog and he plays rough.   He can almost knock you over when playing ball for example.  He was also great with a 9 months old female dog. 
Duman was abandoned by his owners.    He ended up chasing a female in season, and wasn't seen for 5 weeks.   When he was found  he was very thin,  skin and bones with bites and scars, no doubt from trying to defend himself from the street dogs.

 He is in a foster home short term and  has to find a permanent home as soon as possible. Someone with experience of  large breed dogs is essential,  as Duman is strong!
If you are interested, please contact the Turkish Animal Group (TAG) Adoptables page on Facebook (see link on sidebar), or let me know and I will point you in the right direction.
