Tank is one of the most amazing dogs I have ever met, beside being really really really ridiculously good looking, his sole purpose in life is to keep his owner, Amy, alive.
He was trained in Las Vegas by the the US Diabetic Alert Dogs of America. He is able to detect when Amy’s blood sugar levels drop too low or become to high. Twenty four hours a day, 7 days a week, Tank will alert Amy with a gentle tap to the belly. Even in the middle of the night he will stand over her and boop her in the face to wake up. He is far more accurate than any machine and has saved her life hundreds, if not thousands of times over the last 2 years. Thanks to Tank Amy has been able to have Ella and now there’s another little sister on the way.
Tank is also a typical 3 year old pup who loves going for walks, cuddles on the couch and playing with little sister. He is a very patient loving big brother to Ella, even though they sometimes argue over toys. Tank also has a security blanky, that he will bring to the door when you arrive, which you can look at, but don’t touch.
With the most soulful beautiful eyes, that draw you in and his unusual coloring everyone stops on the street to ask what breed he is. He often gets mistaken for a Weimaraner because of the his silver fur.
All in all, I would have to say my favorite thing about Tank is that bottom lip. It’s so human like and when he pouts it’s next level cute.
