Tank is a 3 year old male looking for a foster or forever home

His name says it all, he is a big boy!

Tank is very energetic and playful and very strong on the lead. He still acts like a puppy! He is a big lovable beast with a clumsy character, he will belly flop into bushes whilst trying to cock his leg for a wee! He will also just heavily fall flat on the floor rather than just laying down, a super comical personality and great fun to be around!

He hasn’t been well socialized and doesn’t know how to react to other dogs. He would be best placed as the only dog in the home. Tank is strong on the lead and will bark at other dogs when out and about. He has learnt to wear a muzzle out on walks without any fuss.

He is used to being around children and loves people and lots of fuss and attention. Tank just loves everyone he meets!

Tank has a slight overbite which makes him all the more lovable!

His favourite food is peanut butter. Tank loves cuddles and belly rubs!


Tank is a big lad, very gentle but not necessarily aware of his own strength. Though he is good with children, a home with children over 10 would be better suited.

Tank has settled well into his foster home and he has done so well with his muzzle training, he will be required to wear one on walks. But please don’t be put off by this, he will make a wonderful addition to your home. All he asks for is a lot of love and cuddles.  He sleeps well in his own bed and can be left for reasonable periods of time.

Please contact the rescue if you are interested.

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.
