Story
We found Tank abandoned in Puerto Rico during a trip in June. It was over 100 degrees and he was in bad shape. Tank staggered right up to our rental car. We rushed him to the Humane Society for emergency care. A couple thousands of dollars later, he received needed medical treatment, shots & neutered. We found him a temporary foster family on the island. They can’t keep him long term. He’s been thru so much cruelty and is a gentle, playful and a loving pup. His tail is constantly wagging. He is great with kids and other dogs. I’m not sure about cats, his temp foster home doesn’t have any. He needs a loving home with a gentle family able to love him, take him for walks and adventures, cuddle with him and show him life is about more than cruelty - it’s also about kindness, warmth and compassion. Can you be his forever family? He’s ready to be your forever fur-baby. He’s currently in Puerto Rico and will travel to MN. His rehoming fee will help cover some travel costs.
