Tanner's Story

TannerHi! My name is Tanner. At 3 months old I  was found in a ditch 20 miles from nowhere off hwy 99. I was really scared. Cheryl Bush from Deserving Pet Rescue found me and took me to her vet's office where they found out I not only had a broken jaw but was completely blind.

Cheryl sent out a plea on Facebook saying they could take care of my medical bills if someone could give me a forever home because they didn’t know how to train a blind puppy.

Katie was tagged in that post by lots of people who knew she had a soft spot for blind puppies. So after reading the post it was off to Red Bluff to meet me. When I heard she was coming I put on the charm, knowing she would not be able to resist my sweet puppy personality. I won her over, instantly.

After they wired my jaw I got to go live at the sanctuary, but for the first 6 weeks it was slow going while I healed. 6 weeks later when they removed the wire -- LOOK OUT! I was ready to play, prance and begin my life as a little brother to Blinker and Marley, stealing toys, chasing cats, and prancing around like I owned the place. After all isn’t that how it works in the life of a puppy?

Blinker & TannerMy best friend is Blinker. I call him my big brother cuz he is really big and smart. He has taught me to fetch, run, and look out for trees and cats. I like to walk underneath him -- it is safe there. They say it is literally the blind leading the blind because my Blinker is also blind.

I love to carry things in my mouth like blankets, toys, catnip, shoes, pinecones and, well, you get the picture.

I have graduated from puppy class with Marty from Pawsitive Training. I hear more training is in my future and I can't wait because I love to learn.

Riding in the car is so much fun, but I don’t really like to go to the groomers. They want to cut my toenails and I think they are fine the way they are.

Tanner & Cats
Here I am sharing breakfast with some of my other friends, the cats who rule my domain (at least that's what they think).
