We’re looking for an experienced foster or adoptive home for this big guy TANK! His name is VERY appropriate because he’s a big, strong dog with explosive energy. TANK has come a long way in training and we’ve been working with him daily to help him overcome some fears and better understand the world around him. Unfortunately the first part of his life was very secluded and TANK rarely, if ever, left his home. As such, he came to us extremely hesitant and nervous of pretty much everything. Through proper introductions we’ve been exposing him to more and more, although he is still apprehensive of new situations and can be reactive out of fear. TANK has come a long way with his leash skills but they still need work. He no longer pulls on the leash but still gets very excited when passing other dogs so a strong handler is necessary. He’s ok with other dogs but definitely needs a proper introduction. He doesn’t do well with reactive or dominant dogs so can’t hang out at the dog park. TANK is extremely playful so he needs a house with a yard (the bigger the better #mansionlife #countrylife) and lots of physical and mental stimulation every day to stay calm and happy. Give this guy some kind of ball to play with and he’s beyond excited because ball is life. He makes some pretty strange noises when he gets his spurts of energy that could easily scare people who aren’t familiar with him. He sounds a lot like a lion so.. if you've always wanted one or your fav movie is the lion king.. thoughts? Either way, we tell him to be himself. TANK has not been tested with cats but we think he might be ok. He was always gentle with kids/toddlers in his old home, and even in training hangs out with a 8 year old dude just fine. We’re looking for an experienced owner who is familiar with large breeds and will continue to follow TANK’s training plan. He’s a very loyal dog and really loves his people. We think he can definitely become a snuggler once he adjusts into his furever home.
