Pet Of The Week – Tank

Dogs are loyal and love us unconditionally. Their love knows no end and we as humans should never fail that love, but sadly Tank has been failed twice by humans. But despite this, Tank is still full of love and hope for a family of his own that will be Forever.

Tank first arrived at Green Hills Animal Shelter in September 2022 when he was placed in a kennel and abandoned at the shelter. He was heartbroken and very frightened, but soon warmed up to shelter staff and volunteers, and when a family came along who wanted to adopt him Tank opened his heart and happily headed out to what should have been his Forever Home. Sadly, Tank was failed a second time and was abandoned again, this time in a small town where he could not find his way back to what was supposed to have been his Forever Home.  Thankfully a good Samaritan found Tank and got him to safety. She took Tank to her home, gave him food and water, and brought him to the shelter where staff and volunteers immediately recognized him and he them. And, although Tank’s rescuer was not able to keep him, she had only wonderful things to say about this sweet boy who had quickly won her heart.

Tank, who we believe to be a mix of Corgi and Shepherd and about 3 years old, is a loyal friend who is loving, smart, and protective of those he loves. He can be a little nervous when he first meets new people, especially after being abandoned twice, but once Tank gets to know you his heart is yours and he is ready for pets, belly rubs, and treats! Tank is a wonderful cross between loving and playful, and this intelligent pup is already house-trained and ready to move into his Forever Home.

If Tank could describe his perfect Forever Home he would ask for a calm, adult-only home (the hustle and bustle of small humans tends to make Tank a bit nervous) with a family who will be patient while he settles into his new environment. He would prefer to be an indoor dog with a securely fenced yard where he can safely run and play and then come back inside for belly rubs, treats, and assurances that this time his family will love him Forever. Tank loves other dogs and would very much enjoy having a canine friend in his new home. Most of all though, Tank just wants to be loved Forever and in return, he will give his whole heart to his family.

Tank will go to his Forever Home neutered, dewormed, heartworm tested, and up to date on all vaccinations including rabies. He is a loyal friend who just wants a family who will be loyal to him in return; could you be his Forever Person?
