It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every
new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all
the components of my heart will be dog and I will become as generous and loving and they are.

have both come to the right place."

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."
~Vivian Greene ~
Sweet Tanner embodies this quotation. He has been at the shelter far toolong and
yet he makes everyone smile on a daily basis. Tanner does amazing tricks with
his special ball. He is truly an All-Star soccer player! He knows several
obedience commands, waits nicely for treats, and loves going for walks
and car rides. Tanner would thrive in an adult household. He is
sensitive if someone grabs his collar or neck leading us to think that
there were some traumatic moments in his past. He would also
love to be an only dog or selectivelychoose his canine siblings.
Tanner is such a favorite pup that he qualifies for our Senior Special
Program. Call us for additional information about his program.
