Hank was at TAS South last year for a couple of months at least and barely a person looked his way even though he was a dignified dog with great presence. It was one of those sad situations where everyone at TAS was hoping daily that someone, anyone would show him some interest. Eventually, it was decided to try him out up at TAS North and soon enough he was adopted out. I've always wondered where he ended up and who the lucky person was who saw Hank for the gentleman he truly was.
A fantastic update:
I wanted to drop a line and a few photos in thanks for the gift of Hank. My boy.
I came into the TAS facility back in December looking for a friend. I had seen Hank on the front page of your website one day and decided to at least meet the dog behind the sad eyes – when I arrived at TAS I was greeted warmly and the staff were really kind and professional.
When Hank came trotting out into the yard area he wouldn’t look at me. It was pretty funny actually and after getting to know him I now know this is his style when he meets new people. J
After 20 minutes together he finally came and said hello - 30 minutes later we were in the car on the way home.
I wanted to say to you all at TAS that you are doing a great, wonderful and noble thing in caring for these beautiful animals. Hank and I are best friends - like we’ve known each other for years – it’s as if I raised him from a pup. He’s my boy and I’m his number one.
He’s become the official mascot of my company – even has a place on our employees staff page as “Head of Security” J
He spends his days amongst kids and actors, artists and musicians. He lives in a lofty studio in downtown Toronto, plays in numerous parks and has lots of other furry pals – he even has a couple of new girlfriends! Hank is on a partially raw meat/veg diet and gets lots of love and kisses everyday.
At night he has his own bed in my quarters but usually I awake with him sprawled out beside me snoring away as usual. He’s a very happy and loved dog indeed.
Thank you so much for caring for him when I was not in his life. He came to me weeks after the loss of my mother – truthfully I believe he’s a gift from her.
Please know - The care and dedication you gave to Hank in his hours of need truly paid off not only in his well being but you have helped warm and rekindle the love in my heart.
God bless you all – what a difference you are making each and every day in so many lives.
