When Tank arrived with RCHS he had not had regular meals for awhile and would guard his food bowl from humans. With the help of his wonderful foster family he no longer exhibits this behavior. His new family should be prepared to deal with a little bit of back-sliding from him in this department with transition but his foster family can discuss strategies to help him work through this again if needed.
Tank is house trained but hates being crated. He would love a home where he could stay outside in a fenced area while you are away, rather than in a crate. He says crates are just too stressful. He knows a couple of commands and is a really bright and focused little guy. He seems to have better than average natural recall for a hound and comes when called even if he has the opportunity to go sniff something outside of the fence instead. He still needs someone to keep showing him the ropes, he is still a young puppy, but he is very teachable and well on his way to learning to be a great dog already. Tank does need a home with a fenced yard and would probably be too loud and energetic for apartment living.
