And now a few words from me:
Hello. My name is Tank but my foster Mum doesn’t know why I’m called that as I’m a very trim, very fit and very fast little guy. She says I am even faster than the dachshund who lives here and she is only one! I think the reason I am so fast is that I love my ball. Did I mention I love my ball? Whenever we play ball and we get to run and chase it, I am ALWAYS the first one to get there first. I also love to go on long hikes and I listen very well. I like to stay close to my people and don’t like to be out of sight of them, but I am doing better now as long as I know they are in the house somewhere. In the evening I love to sit on a lap and nap and then at bedtime I sleep very quietly in my crate until you let me out in the morning. I am so looking forward to meeting my forever family – could it be you?
And now a few words from my foster family:
Tank is just the sweetest little guy. Not knowing his background, he was very needy when he came to us. He doesn’t like to be left alone and even when you are with him he wants to be close to you. However since arriving into our care, he has started to adapt to our routine and is gaining security in that. He can now stay quietly with the other dogs in the kitchen while we are in and out, and he couldn’t do that when he first arrived. He is a very quick little learner and is very eager to please. Within days of his arrival he understood that he had to sit and wait for his dinner with the other two dogs, and not just dig right in. Tank loves his ball and can have a tendency to guard it as a resource, if left unmonitored. As a result, we have certain times where we play ball and when that activity is over, we put the ball away and he knows that its over, and happily goes on to something else. He gets along fine with the canine foster siblings, and would get along just as well without another dog. He is a very loving little guy and wants nothing more than to hang out with his humans and be part of whatever they are doing.
