Well, hello handsome! How can we resist such charm? This irresistible gentleman is Tanner, our Adoptable Dog of the Week from A dashing young pup from New Orleans, Louisiana, he’s a Vizsla/American Pitbull Terrier mix who’s already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Tanner’s Story:

Tanner is an adorable 1.5 year old. He looks like a Vizsla and Pitbull mix puppy. He had severe demodex mange and was put on the list to be euthanized despite the fact that it’s a treatable condition. Lovers Not Biters could not let this sweet boy die so we rescued him the night before he was set to be euthanized. He is now healthy and mange free! He has been dewormed, is up to date on shots, and neutered. He knows some basic obedience but would benefit from an owner willing to work with him to continue this training. He is a young, active pup and needs an active owner/family. He would do best in a home with a yard so he can run and play. He may look like a tough guy but Tanner is actually a champion snuggler! He is a goofy bundle of joy who enjoys playing with toys. His favorite toy is a stick! Tanner also has a favorite spot – he loves to lounge around in a laundry basket and get a nap in. Tanner is a total love bug inside but would need an active family to continue his training. He loves other dogs once he gets acquainted, has also lived with a cat. So if you are looking for kissable little man and willing to enhance his brilliance, Tanner is definitely your guy! Please contact us if interested in meeting Tanner. Our email is
