COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Tanner is a 5-year-old Terrier mix up for adoption at Pawmetto Lifeline!

We saved sweet Tanner from a local municipal shelter where he was at-risk of euthanasia. He is a big, playful, lovable meatball! Tanner is always smiling and gives lots of kisses. He loves to be loved on and petted! Tanner weighs about 65 pounds. However, he thinks he is 15 pounds and will try to fit in your lap. He is a great cuddler and just can’t get close enough to you. Tanner is a big-time treat lover and will do just about anything to earn one! He is a super chill, low-energy, goofy pup that has so much love to give.

Tanner doesn’t have a huge desire to be around other dogs. He is definitely a people dog! However, if an adopter does have another dog, he seems to do best with other chill, loving, goofy meatball dogs like himself. He cannot go to a home with cats as he has shown a prey drive in the past.

Tanner seems to have a special affection for women and can sometimes be protective of them. He has had some trouble adjusting to men in a home. The training staff at Pawmetto Lifeline have lots of advice to offer as well as a free training session to set Tanner up for success in his new forever home!

If we can’t find an adopter soon, we would love to find Tanner a foster home so we can learn more about how he does in a home and give him a break from the stressful kennel environment.

Pawmetto Lifeline is open for adoptions from 12:00 to 6:00 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays at 1275 Bower Parkway in Columbia, SC. For a faster, smoother adoption experience, please complete an adoption application online before your visit at Questions? Contact
