Tanner ~ in Southern California

Looking for a Home

Hi! I'm Tanner!

I am approximately 3 years old. I am great with other dogs. I am a very happy and healthy boy who loves to run and play. I have several toys that I know the names of and entertain myself with those toys for hours. I am kennel trained and outside potty trained. I am in good health, am neutered and do not have dental issues. I come when called, will sit and will get off of furniture when told to. I pretend I don't know these commands, so you will have to be firm with me and not let me get away with it. I have never tried to zip out the front gate, but will try to go out the front door. You must have a fenced yard for me. You will have to work with me not going out past you at the front door.

I am a dog who never had any discipline and I was used to getting my own way. I was such a brat when I first came to my foster home, I scared my foster dad with my barking and chased the kitties as often as I could. Now I am much happier, I listen about 80% of the time and I play well with the other dogs. My most endearing quality is when I pull out all of my toys and play with each of them, throwing them in the air over and over. I also do zoomies in the yard, running around and around as fast as I can.

I can be possesive of whatever area I have claimed to lounge in for the day. I am not good with children or cats. I have some serious issues with men and strangers, but I am deeply bonded to my main caregivers. I have come a long way with this mistrust and work every single day to get over my problems with men. I need a home that will be firm with me and not let me get away with my bad behaviors.

Note from Tanner's foster mom: While his behavioral issues are serious, they are completely manageable and I will be working with you as much as needed if you decid to adopt him. He really needs someone with an open heart that can be firm and give him the guidance he needs.

Tanner's new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for him. Preference will be given to local applicants. His adoption fee will be $200. If you are interested in Tanner, please fill out an application and mention his name. The application is on-line at https://silkyrescue.tripod.com/appform.htm. If you have already filled out an application, it is not necessary to re-do it...just email us at SilkyRescueApps@gmail.com and let us know you are interested in Tanner (please include your name and state so we can find your application in our files).
