Saddest Eyes – Regal, Senior Shepherd Waits For A Hero

Waco, TX – A regal, senior German shepherd named Tank is waiting at the City of Waco Animal Services facility for a hero. This handsome boy may be past his prime, but he still carries himself in a dignified manner.

The Humane Society of Central Texas has posted Tank’s information to Facebook, writing:

The saddest eyes…
This sweet, sweet old man needs a savior. That’s all there is to say.
Tank Velero (A111033) was once a majestic dog. He still carries himself as stately, but time has taken its toll on him, and living in a noisy, upsetting shelter at the end of his life certainly isn’t kind.
Tank is frightened inside his kennel, but once outside, he walks like a proud gentleman on a leash. He apparently is potty trained. As soon as he gets a break, he’ll take care of his business outside.


He’s attentive and notices everything around him. Tank hears well, and responds excitedly to squeaks, indicating he may like a toy or two. He even will be vocal once he’s relaxed, and does he have a commanding bark!
As stated earlier, Tank Valaro would benefit from a hospice foster home or a forever home from a person or family that has a soft heart for older pups who may only have a short time left.
If it’s in your soul to make a difference in a dog’s life, then this guy would be ever so grateful for the opportunity.
