"I gave him the toy and he played by himself for hours," Minda Harris, rescue coordinator at Montgomery County Animal Shelter in Texas, tells The Dodo.
Hours. By himself. Playing with a stuffed animal.
"He was just staring at me, looking bored. I felt so sorry for him," she explains. "He was so flipping happy."
Just imagine how long it may have been since anyone gave Taz a token of his days before the shelter.
Or how good it must have felt to have felt to play catch. Even if he ended up flinging the toy into the air by himself.
And then catching it by himself.
Yes, he's been here a long time.
