Meet Tank

On July 3rd Tank arrived at the pound as a stray. He had been found on Marmion on the Southside of Youngstown. When dogs come in around the holiday we often assume that they were running scared from fireworks. If this was the case you would have thought his people would have looked for him. They did not.
After all of these weeks someone who knows Tank informed us that his real name is Bruno and that his owners have since gotten a new puppy. We made contact with them and the woman indicated that her boyfriend must have dumped him. She also said they no longer have the new puppy.
I realize this way seem like it has nothing to do with finding Tank a new home….but it just might.

Tank was not a priority. He was dumped or was lost—either way at the hands of his family. He may have had no training. He may have not known stability or companionship as well. All that we know is that he was failed by humans.

Going forward he will need to learn that he matters. He will need play time and enrichment activities. Tank will need companionship and lots of patience and love.

He is amazing one on one and loves to go for walks. He plays with toys like a wild child and can run like a rocket!

Tank is on the small side for a pit bull type mix. He will do better in a calm environment with consistency and training to help him be the best pup that he can be.

Currently he is in a room by himself due to the stress that loud barking from his neighbors causes him. At any given day he might have to be moved to a kennel to make room for more dogs. This undoubtedly will cause him stress and a huge behavioral set back.

Please share him. He needs a hero.
