Meet Tank! He may just have the most kissable face of any puppy EVER! He loves to snuggle just as much as he loves to run and play. He loves his 3 sisters, his foster big dog sister, and his two little foster humans. Tank is doing great at potty training and we are working on teaching him that not every foot moving across the floor is a chew toy. He is a bundle of cuteness looking for his forever home!
Tank has severe entropion. This is where the eyelids curl in and rub against the eyes. If not corrected, not only is it super painful but can also cause corneal ulcers and eventually loss of vision. In a full grown dog, the corrective surgery is cutting the excessive skin away. However since he still has lots of growing to do, his eye lids will be tacked with 2 sutures at top and bottom of each eye to correct them. These sutures will remain in until he is full grown. Occasionally once the dog grows, the eye lids correct themselves. However the adopter will need to know that once he is full grown it is likely he will need corrective surgery once he is closer to fully grown. He will need occasional rechecks to ensure the sutures are holding and correct.
GIVE and be the reason Tank will get to live comfortably and see as his new life after rescue!
