Comments:
Tank is the ultimate love bug! He wants to be near his humans at all time. Tank would do best with a family who has a work from home family member or a retiree. Though he is kennel trained, he would prefer to be napping on a bed, couch, or his dog bed (as a last resort). He will let you know his displeasure at being kenneled if he thinks there are fun things going on without him and foster family has yet to find anything that adequately distracts him from thinking otherwise. Dog snuggles are a must and he will come let you know when he wants to be lifted onto the bed or couch.

Tank would do best with kids 6 and up who are well versed with bulldogs and how they don’t know their own strength. Tank is short and stout coming in at 54 lbs, but he is strong and will pull on his leash. He is working on his manners but really is looking for a family with a lot of love to give.

His foster parents describe him as “pawsy”- Tank will paw at you to let you know if he needs more attention or feels he hasn’t gotten adequate belly scratches. He knows sit, lay down, and shake, but in truly bully fashion only does these things when he wants to- usually if you have a treat.

Tank is presumed to be completely blind in one eye and only sees shadows with the other eye- don’t let that fool you into thinking it slows him down- it definitely does not and Tank can run fast if he thinks he needs to. He has done a great job at getting to know his foster home and figures out the lay of the land pretty quickly. He does occasionally bump into things so would do best with a home where furniture moving around is few and far between. He responds well to commands of- "step up," "step down," "careful," and a firm "NO!" if he is danger. His foster parents are working with him on bell training to let you know when he wants to go potty- his current method is jumping on you- and boy he can knock you over if you’re not expecting it! He has not had any accidents and appears to be fully potty trained.

Though Tank had a rough start in life this 5 year old is ready for a life of luxury with dogs beds, couches, and naps. He does well on (very) short walks, he will plop down as soon as he is done and you might have to carry him home if he doesn’t want to go any further. Though he is doing well with his foster sister, Tank wants to be the king of his kingdom and would do best as an only dog or with one other submissive dog. His reaction to cats is unknown at this time.

Tank will require two prescription eye drops 2x a day, as well as lubricating drops as often as you can give them. He is working through some tail pocket issues and needs his booty wiped after bathroom trips but is fairly calm about this happening once he trusts you. He has a deep nose rope that has to be cleaned daily. Tank currently takes Benadryl, Zyrtec, and a joint supplement daily. He absolutely loves peanut butter but is very sneaky about finding his heart worm preventative in foods. He is a connoisseur of treats and very particular about which ones he likes and will sample and spit out any treats he deems sub par.

Interested adopters need to travel to Lincoln/Omaha with all family members and resident dogs to meet Tank.
