What a perfect name for the little guy. Tan nose. Tan coat. Tan eyes. The coat sealed the deal since it was the same color as Krista's red hair.
Tanner had been at the SPCA for about a month. We were really surprised to learn that no one had adopted him sooner since he is a totally engaging little guy. The Los Banos, CA pound had called the SPCA in Modesto to ask if they would be willing to take Tanner in. He was about to be euthanized and the pound folks in Los Banos didn't want to do it. He was sweet, young, healthy, and very adoptable. SPCA stepped up and Tanner dodged a major bullet.
Tanner is about 12 lbs, loves to play with his ball and his chew toy. He doesn't bark hardly at all. We've actually only heard him once so far. He is semi-housebroken. Training him to use the pet door to use the backyard is our major activity.
Our cat, Gus, let Tanner know right off the bat who was boss. Tanner is showing the proper respect and Gus is now showing interest in Tanner. They are actually about the same size so it's a good mix.
Tanner is a bit jumpy and startles easily but we think that with time that quirk will disappear. He doesn't like voluntarily getting into cars so we have to lift him in for the time being. But once he is in the car he's great. Nose to the window, he collects fans at all the stoplights. We picked up a car seat for him yesterday at Pet Extreme and Tanner loves his special place. The seat fits over the back of the front or back seats and there is a clip to secure Tanner's collar to he can't jump around. It's roomy and comfy, rides high off the seat and Tanner can look out and see his world.
Welcome to our house little guy.
