Alhambra Source partnered with the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society for a weekly column, "Pet of the Week." Every week we'll introduce you to a new animal looking for a home. This week's pet is Tank, a American Staffordshire terrier mix. Read more about Tank below!
Breed: American Staffordshire terrier mix
Age: 5 years
Weight: 65 pounds
Fur: Champagne and white
Tank is a lovable five-year-old Staffordshire mix with strapping good looks and a laid back personality. He has a gorgeous champagne-and-white coat that perfectly compliments his amber eyes and pinkish button-nose.
Tank lives up to his name as he is more of a love-machine than anything else. He is also very smart because he has quickly learned his "sit" and "shake" commands and he can actually shake with both paws! Tank enjoys spending time going on walks, playing with toys, and hanging out with his human friends. He also loves to roll on the ground and offer up his belly for gentle belly scratches. He has no reservations about offering up his belly to anyone, anywhere, at anytime for much-deserved belly rubs! He also enjoys playing dress up and getting festive with costumes.
Tank, like many other dogs, came to the shelter after being surrendered by his owners with nothing but a heavy chain around his neck. He would much rather wear sunglasses and a hat. He is a big boy with a big heart who is looking for that special forever home that can appreciate his clownish personality and goofy antics. See Tank in action here
If you are that special family, please stop by to meet this lovable guy who will most likely be belly up already! His adoption fee is $145 and includes neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and a free wellness exam at a participating veterinarian. Feel free to call us at (626) 286-1159 for more information on Tank.
