High-carb and crispy on the outside, soft, warm, and comforting on the inside; everyone loves Tater Tots! He’s the black male with the piqued ears and a white stripe down his nose is the one with the most emotional intelligence. Russet will be that dog who rests his paw gently on your shoulder when you’ve come home from a “ruff” day and need a good listener. He loves his people snuggles and likes to show you his soft side.

He’s is one of three born to a petite, 30 lbs, blue heeler named Sweet Potato who has already found her forever home. Her puppies look like they may have had different fathers, but there’s no telling. You’re not going to find sweeter, more lovable spud muffins than these attractive, smart puppies. All of the Tater Tots are house broken when kept to a routine water/food schedule. While in their crate, the tots will signal their people when it’s time to go outside. They are eager to please and listen well, try to play exuberantly with the grumpy adult dogs in their foster home, and enjoy people visitors. We have not observed the Tater Tots around cats or other animals.

Russet is housebroken, crate-trained and fully vetted. He is currently located in Mesa, AZ


The first step to meeting any of our dogs is to submit an application. It in no way obligates you to adopt, it is simply part of our process. If the dog you are interested in is adopted before you can meet them or if we do not currently have a dog you are interested in we still encourage you to go through the approval process. Then you will be pre-approved and ready to adopt when a dog does come along that you are interested in.
