Adoptable Dog of the Week – Tanner

This dapper little fella is looking for his furever after- who can resist this cutie pie? Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Tanner, a 7-year-old silver and tan Yorkshire Terrier from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This lovely pooch is neutered, up to date with his shots and heartworm negative. Tanner does well with other dogs and cats but would do best in a kid-free home.

Tanner’s Tale

Before he was rescued, Tanner lived in rough conditions–he was malnourished and had heartworms. Luckily, after months of therapy and care, Tanner is now at the right weight, heartworm negative and has a clean bill of health–as well as a great desire to find a family to call his own. And, boy, will the family that chooses him (or the other way around?) be lucky!

Tanner is the sweetest petite pooch you’ll ever meet. He loves cuddling, snuggling, sleeping right next to you- in other words, everything that involves being showered in affection. Tanner is a clingy pooch that will become your cute shadow–where you go, he goes. After years of neglect, Tanner is now enjoying being in the center of attention and loves nothing more than being hugged, petted, and carried around. While he does well with other dogs, his clinginess might be an issue if your other pet is also clingy- he might get jealous, so it’s best if your other pet is easy-going.

Smart and loving, Tanner also enjoys playing with toys- he knows how to fetch, and even brings toys on command. In other words, this little doggo is full of great surprises and you’ll love sharing your life with such a fun and affectionate furball. He also doesn’t mind living with cats, but due to his tiny size, his rescuers recommend he be adopted in a home without children.
