This earnest little puppy is Tanner, a lab/hound mix who’s 4-5 months old.
As you can see, he knows how to sit properly on a bench…
…and on the ground. He’s very food motivated and would love to go to obedience school.
He’s also one of the more relaxed puppies I’ve met- his primary talent seems to be cheerfully chilling out with you until it’s time for food or walks.
Tanner does a good job of looking cute while lounging around…
… Or maybe he just knows what to do in hot summers.
Such as lying in shade and moving as little as possible (maybe on your porch or patio).
Don’t worry, he knows when it’s time to play. He just doesn’t see the point of overexerting himself 🙂
Or maybe he’s waiting for another dog to come by and play with him- he gets along with other dogs.
I almost forgot one more thing! Tanner loves to give kisses any chance he can get- he’s very affectionate that way.
One note though- Tanner is going to be big! He’s already got enormous paws.
In short, Tanner will be a very fun puppy to train – just make sure you’ll have room for him!
He’ll also be a great dog for anyone who understands the importance of balancing work and play.
If you are interested in Tanner, please come visit him in Kennel 48. For more information on Tanner, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below.
Some updated photos of Tanner- he’s learned to sit in a chair!
And he’s still a champ at ‘sit’ and looking cute!
