That’s three-legged Tanner in a photo I took on Sunday?morning. He demolished the soft chew toy in about two minutes flat, then carried it to the door and looked over at me. I knew what this meant — he wanted to go outside so he could run across the front yard with it, then drop it somewhere so I could pick it up later for him. Yep, that’s exactly what happened. Poop scooping later that morning, I came across the toy, stuffed it in my pocket, and that was that.
Earlier this year we thought we had an adoption lined up for Tanner, but the person eventually decided it was too far to travel (she was in the midwest). We were fine with that, since we?had?really come to adore’this lovable, handsome?boy. We let things go and continued to enjoy having his company. But after much soul-searching, we’ve decided to make him available for adoption again. This can be a very difficult decision for us, because we do get attached, and boy were we getting attached to this guy. But Tanner is one of those very adoptable dogs — young, healthy, sweet, affectionate, and bright. He will make a special someone very happy! Tanner also gets along great with other dogs, every one of whom he thinks is his new best friend.
Before we make it official and post him on PetFinder, we wanted to let our blog readers know so they could have a first shot at him. Potential adopters will need to come to the farm in New Hampshire to meet us and Tanner. Serious inquiries only, please. If you’re interested, please email me at steve[at]rollingdogfarm.org. We do the initial screening/interview process by email.

Tanner, I hope you find an awesome fur-ever home……you deserve it!
Oh, what I wouldn’t give to bring Tanner home, but I can barely afford the 2 dogs I have now (disability stinks). I’ve always looked forward to reading about him and I will pray that he gets a wonderful home 🙂

Oh man, if you were just still in Montana………………..
He’ll make a lovely addition to any family.
Tanner is a wonderful dog and deserves the best family. I will look forward to seeing how he wins the perfect heart.

Such a beautiful doggie!
He is a handsome boy and with the healthy, sweet, smart stats he has,
he will find a home…I’m sure.
He’s come a long way from the streets and shelter in Arkansas!

Tanner is my boy. We recently lost our Pepper and Buster (mid summer 2013 and early winter 2014). Now my husband misses a dog to go on a hike in the woods with him. We adopted 2 little guys from our shelter but it’s not the same. We can’t make a trip to Lancaster. We’d pass muster on adopting Tanner—triple A. Too bad there’s not a way to get him closer to us, he’d be ours forever!
