Tank is a big boy full of love & loyalty. 8 years old but still full of energy! He needs someone strong to handle him (he is 125lb +), especially due to his reactivity. He pulls towards strangers on walks and can be dog reactive on a leash. I believe it is fear-driven reactivity that can be worked on with a confident owner/trainer. Tank is VERY food motivated. Watch out for that drool, though!! "Water-works" is a common nickname for him!!
He has not been tested around kids recently but past history tells us he has been around kids successfully. Tank is very big and forgets how powerful he is so he would do best around kids who will tolerate being sat on & butt-pushed around! He has a loud, almost scary “rottie-rumble” that he uses when playing but means no harm.
He does bark at strange noises and Amazon workers, but not always! Sometimes he is really into his couch nap that he doesn’t even notice us come home!
Tank has been on a grain-free diet and I suspect he is allergic to chicken as well. (hotspots, itching)
