Meet Tank! He is a Rottweiler Mix who is approximately 4 years old and neutered.
This boy has seen some horrors in his short life. He came from a domestic violence home where he could no longer tolerate the male of the home beating the lady of the house. It was mentioned that Tank did not get aggressive or bite but instead stood between the humans, guarding the woman until the aggressor backed down walked away.
During Tanks time in this home, he was boarded at a training facility off and on for about 2-years before he was finally surrendered to the facility. He’s come to trust the facility as a haven free from violence.
He knows his basic commands but will need to work on his leash skills. He is crate trained and house-trained, but much prefers to be an outside dog. Because Tank is a protector, he will climb a fence or find away to break out of a pen so he can be near his humans, so we do not recommend he be left outside unattended.
Although Tank is a very loving boy with humans, he is not recommended to be around other dogs. The training facility has been working through his issues and he has improved greatly but he still has little tolerance, especially with male dogs. Tank is a resource guarder to he would be much happier as an only pet.
Tank has historically been prone to getting hot spots every spring and every fall on his cheek area, but they don’t last too long without medical intervention. He has had previous eye surgery for entropion (curled in eyelashes)
Tanks ideal home is a quieter environment with a moderately active individual or couple, without other pets. He would thrive with guardians who will strive to help him forget his abusive past.
