About Tank

German Shepherd mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Hello, my name is Tank I'm almost 7 years old, German shepherd / Husky mix, my birthday is 3/23/2014. I get all my shots including the flu shot every year plus the flea and thick treatment. I don't know what happened in the 1st year of my life and how I was treated or how many human parents I had but I was fortunate to have been adopted by a good human mom when I was 1 year old and took me a long time to know what love and cuddles are but unfortunately I haven't been crate trained (my new mom tried and I destroyed 3 of them before she gave up) and I get very anxious and I don't trust meeting new people except when I go to paradise 4 paws because I know the people there. I'm house trained, smart and a good boy most of the time. I like my butt scratched but don't touch my paws. Love car rides, laying on the couch, going for a walk and play with Frisbee and balls, swim in the summer and play in the snow, but I'm afraid of motorcycles, bicycles, scooters basically anything that is not a car. I haven't been trained properly ( obedience training) but I do know few commends like: sit, stay, lay and I love treats. I don't like small dogs, bulldogs or cats and I like to try to catch the squirrels and bunnies. I also get very protective of the territory I live in and people that take care of me but I believe with proper training I can change. Love Tank P.S. I had an incident with the mailman back in April 2020. Since I got divorced and moved into a new house just with Tank he has been very protective of territory and me. I have 2 signs on the gate (be aware of the dog / warning security dog) warning people to stay away and I've talked to the mailman many times about it. He kept putting milk bones under my gate ignoring what I have told him many times and the signs I have on my gate. One day I was out in the backyard with him and when tank felt the mailman by the gate he snapped and went thru the gate before I got the chance to grab him and got the mailman biting him on the leg. I love Tank but I can't afford to have him trained, I work a lot and and he is mostly home by himself ( 8-10 hours daily)and I feel guilty about it. He will do great with someone who has the time to take care of him. Only serious people please
