Why choose me?

Update: Tank has been treated for heartworms (received Diroban shots)! Please wish him well as he recovers!

Update 5/31: This guy is so great! He’s close to housetrained, great with all the other dogs he’s met, and is soooo friendly and loving with me! (He’s still not sure what to make of cats yet, though.) While his foster mom adored him, once she had to return to work she couldn’t keep him any longer so he’s back at the shelter. This guy has come so far, from being an untrusting, injured, sick, pretty hopeless stray to being a handsome and happy boy–all he needs is a rescue or forever family now! Please call the shelter at 706-613-3540 to see about meeting and adopting or rescuing him!

Update 4/12: Tank is in a shelter foster home! Check back for updates as we learn more about this great pup, and call the shelter at 706-613-3540 to learn how to adopt or rescue him!

Update 4/3: Tank’s amputation went well and he’s now recovering. He could really use a shelter foster home (or rescue) for a few weeks while he adapts to life as a tripod. Please call the shelter at 706-613-3540 if you can help Tank out!

Tank came to us from Hancock County where he was spotted by a volunteer attempting to forage for food. The poor guy was almost bald from demodex and had a badly broken leg that, unfortunately, needs to be amputated because shards of the bone are floating loose. He’s an affectionate guy who needs a soft hand and lots of TLC–life has not been kind to him so far. He wants nothing more than to be with his people and be told that he’s a good boy–because he is! We’re hoping to find a medical foster for Tank who can help him recover from his neglect; please call the shelter at 706-613-3540 if you have a soft bed and lots of love to offer this sweet boy!
