Socialization Around strangers, Tank is very friendly and outgoing. He is very sweet and playful. He does very well around children. The owner has a 3 year old son that loves to play with Tank. He plays exuberantly with the children in the home. He does well around cats, he does not try to chase them. He also likes other dogs, mostly smaller ones. He has not bitten anyone or any other animal. Behavior Tank was being walked two times a day. The owner says that he has never had an accident inside of the home.

For a new family to know The owner describes Tank as friendly, affectionate, confident, and playful. He has a high activity level. The owner describes him as a big baby that loves attention. She says that sometimes he forgets how big he is, that he would push the child over but the child would get right back up and give Tank hugs. He loves to play and run around. He pulls lightly on the leash. She was feeding him Purina dry food. Tank had his own bed in the bed room with the owner. He lived with a family that mostly speaks spanish, so he knows commands in both languages. Behavior during intake Tank was very calm and had an open mouth. His tail wagged as I spoke to his owner and he would jump up on the counter to see who she was speaking to. Once he saw me, his tail began to wagg. He allowed me to approach him with the scanner. He sniffed the scanner and was curious of what it was. He allowed to be leashed and collared. He sat quietly for treats and we were able to get a good photo. He gave us a bit of a struggle to be put into a kennel. He whined and barked inside of the kennel. Over all, he was very friendly and loved the attention we gave him.
07/08/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Tank has ‘one of those faces’ and something about his joyful yet pleading eyes went right to my heart from the moment we met. He’s a family dog used to being with his people, so kennel life has him a bit stressed out, and he’s not shy about letting us volunteers know when it’s time for a walk! His enthusiasm levels go through the roof once he realizes we’re heading for the yard, and as soon as I let him off leash he immediately celebrates by using the facilities, then jogging around the pen in search of new and exciting smells. Other dogs are met with great fanfare and lots of happy tail wagging, and he always comes when called for petting, or to snuffle some treats (and boy, does he LOVE treats) gently from my hand. Surrendered to our care when his owner ran into housing difficulties, Tank comes with the best possible recommendations, and we’re told he lived and played with a 3 year old child, likes all dogs (especially the little ones) and even gets along well with cats! He’s described as affectionate and confident with high energy levels, so a lively, active home where he has plenty of two- and four-legged family members (or friends) to play with would be ideal. Did I mention he also gives passionate kisses? Yes, love is definitely in the air whenever this handsome boy is around! He may have a ‘tough’ name but Tank is one of the good guys, and having aced his behavior assessment, he’s ready to wag that happy tail all the way home with you today!
