Tanner (previous name: Trinket) was spotted by volunteer Jenna Guffy amongst the many dogs at Animal AWARE in the summer of 2012. When he still hadn’t been adopted by that fall, she asked us to take him. Unfortunately, when we got him he has suffered an injury and had an untreated total tear of one of the ligaments in his knee.

Tanner underwent a very invasive surgery to reattach and repair his torn ligaments, and convalesced for several months in the home of volunteer Carla. After being thoroughly spoiled in his foster home, we sent him to Jenna in adoption to San Francisco.

Tanner was adopted by good friends of Jenna’s and has a wonderful life in the Bay area. He has full use of his hind leg and runs like the wind.
