Dec 8/14: Tank was adopted!

UPDATE: September 1, 2014
Tank continues to undergo therapy to recovery from surgery.  Come and visit him at NewfStock later this month!

UPDATE: April 9, 2014
Tank underwent hip replacement surgery and all went well.  He has several weeks of recovery and rehab ahead of him.  Thank you to everyone who donated towards his care!

This sweet boy arrived on September 30, 2013 as an owner surrender. He is settling in wonderfully at his foster home and is proving to be a gentle, loving Newf, fantastic with all the other dogs and cats at his foster home. See for yourself in the video below... he just met all those dogs 5 minutes before the video was filmed. What a sweet boy!

In this video Tank is with two 7-week old puppies; what a wonderful boy he is! As far as personalities go, you could not find a sweeter, calmer, more gentle boy than Tank. He is simply fantastic with every dog he encounters.

Just 2 years old, Tank has orthopedic issues with his backend, which is why he was surrendered. His owners loved him but could not afford to address his health issues. Tank requires surgery to replace his hips and we are running a fundraising campaign to raise the funds for his surgery and rehabilitation.

Details on how you can donate towards Tank's Happy Hips Fund are posted here  -  please support Tank!

In this video you can see Tank on his morning walk. Despite his hip/knee issues he does enjoy toodling around with the other dogs and likes to get out and enjoy nature, just not for super long walks!

Tank is neutered, up to date with vaccines and was born on July 10, 2011.
