Pet of the Week: Tank, a youthful hound mix ready to take on the world

Meet Tank, a young hound mix eager to enlist into a new home after parting ways with his previous one.

According to his new friends at Mutt Love Rescue, Tank “was surrendered by his family through no fault of his” own. He is a new enough arrival that the rescue organization is still developing a more detailed bio for him, but his congenial personality was evident from the outset.

“He is a solid boy, for those who love big dogs, weighing in at 85 pounds and he is approximately 4 years old,” Mutt Love Rescue says. “He is a very sweet boy, gets along with other dogs, and would love a family to spoil him.”

Tank is among the dogs available for adoption or fostering at one of the nonprofit’s upcoming events:

Saturday Nov 27th 12- 3pm Weber’s Pet Supermarket; 11135 Lee Hwy; Fairfax

Saturday Dec 4th 12-3 pm Weber’s Pet Supermarket; 2280 Hunters Wood Plaza; Reston

Saturday Dec 11th 12-3 pm Weber’s Pet Supermarket; 11135 Lee Highway; Fairfax

We are always desperate for foster homes, now more than ever. If you are interested in fostering during this difficult time, please complete an application… unless you are a previous adopter/foster, then you can just contact us via phone (703-988-2608) or email ([email protected]) to tell us which dog you want to foster!

For information on sponsoring this dog, please write to [email protected]

Could Tank be the ideal new recruit for your company?

He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
