SCAR interviewed Tanner to see what his pup-sonality is all about!
SCAR: Tanner, it’s so nice to meet you! Can you tell us, what’s the best thing about you?
Tanner: I would have to say my goofy personality! I love to play and make people laugh, I’m still pretty young, so I can be a little clumsy sometimes.
SCAR: We’re going to play a game of lightning round, we will say a couple of things and you tell us which one suits you best. Dogs or cats?
Tanner: I love my dog foster sibling, she is really fun to pester. She’s about 40 lbs and a little older than me, and we run around in the backyard to play and cuddle together once we’re back inside.
SCAR: House-trained or working on it?
Tanner: Well, I’m working on it, but as long as I get reminded to go outside to potty, and someone can recognize my cues, I’ve been doing pretty good. Except, sometimes I get nervous, then I tend to have problems with my house-training. I’m sure I’ll get there.
SCAR: Tennis balls or tug-of-war?
Tanner: My foster sibling and I have fun playing tug-of-war, sometimes she even pulls me through the house since I’ll never let go, but what can I say? It’s a pretty fun ride!
SCAR: Snuggles or no?
Tanner: Most definitely a snuggle guy. The closer I can get to you, the better.
SCAR: Walks or car rides?
Tanner: I love going for car rides. I have my very own booster seat and seatbelt, and I can watch as we cruise the streets. Walking isn’t my favourite thing, mostly because I’m a little scared that when we leave the house, I might get left behind and never fed again, just like before. I’m trying to be braver about it, but it’s hard to trust again.
SCAR: Midday naps or go-go-go all day?
Tanner: I love a good midday nap, especially since I’m still young and need to re-energize for playtime!
SCAR: How would you describe your perfect forever family?
Tanner: I think my perfect forever family would be one that understands my youth and to have patience with me while helping me to learn and train. I would love a family that has another dog that doesn’t mind a younger dog like me who wants to play and will help me build my confidence in trusting people and situations that are unfamiliar. Really, I just want a family to love me no matter what, that will treat me as one of them, and will cuddle with me for the rest of my days.
SCAR: Thank you so much, Tanner. You’re so great, we know the right family will find you.
