RADAR recently assisted a dog named Sherman, and now we have a dog named Tank. If we listed these two together, we’d have ourselves a Sherman Tank! Three years old and a Bully-Chow Chow mix, Tank was admitted to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee on March 5th. Tank had lived his entire life with his owner, but then was surrendered to the shelter when his owner moved. Not only was Tank heartworm positive, but he was already symptomatic with a slight cough.

On March 30th, Kristin Baksa from the shelter asked for RADAR’s assistance to help with Tank’s heartworm treatment costs. “Once his treatment is complete,” Kristin said, “his friendly nature and love of other dogs and people will ensure he finds his forever home.” We agreed to assist. Tank’s heartworm treatment took place on April 2nd and 3rd. Following his recovery in a foster home from the treatment, he has an adoptive family waiting for him!

Kristin told us this about Tank: “He is a young, playful dog with a goofy smile and friendly brown eyes that like to look right at you and say, ‘Got treats?” He sits for treats and is a well-behaved dog.” Click here to view more photos of Tank.

RADAR paid $250 towards Tank’s heartworm treatment costs.

UPDATE! All funds for Tank have been raised! Thank you!

UPDATE! Tank has been adopted!
