I have changed my dogs diet now to Purina ProPlan weight management after 8 years of a grain free diet…she is not showing any signs but I have added a Taurine Supplement to her diet of 1000mg a day.  she is a 78 lbs pit mix. My question: Is the taurine supplement safe for my dog..I have read that if she does not need the amount her body will discard.

There have not been any toxicity studies on Taurine in dogs but it has been reported to be safe for 1000 mg/kg in people (https://web.archive.org/web/20090216014217/http://efsa.europa.eu/EFSA/efsa_locale-1178620753812_1211902328128.htm).  You are well within the limits for this.
