Tank Lyu – Half English and Half Olde English Bulldog
Bombshell Lyu – English Bulldog
How did you obtain your pet?
Tank: From a breeder in Lynchburg, VA as a puppy.
Bombshell: She was rescued from a Korean meat farm through the hard work of Lost Dog Foundation.
How old is your pet?
Tank is turning 6 this December!
Bombshell recently turned 4 years old!
What is your pet’s favorite pastime?
Tank: He likes to sleep and destroy things that are expensive. Bulldogs naturally love to destroy things and Tank has destroyed everything from an entire couch to a MacBook pro.
Bombshell: She is a bulldog so she naturally loves to chew on furniture and destroy it. But her most favorite pastime is bothering her brother Tank. She constantly jumps on him, waits until he isn’t paying attention, and takes his toys and hides them.
What is your pet’s favorite toy?
Tank: He is crazy about blankets. He must have had at least 30 blankets of his own. He would suck on it for hours until he falls asleep.
Bombshell: Her favorite toy is whichever she sees Tank playing with.
What is your favorite thing about your pet?
Tank: Tank is the most gentle, selfless, and well-tempered dog! His sister Bombshell, who we rescued from a meat farm in Korea, can be very greedy and likes to take everything Tank has. But he just shares and lets her be a spoiled brat.
Bombshell: Every time we come home, she is jumping up and down, tippy tappy, and so excited to see us. That always brightens my day. Bombshell also loves to cuddle and be held. I think it’s all the hardship and neglect she endured that has her craving for affection.
If your pet had a superpower, what would it be?
Tank: His ability to melt my heart and get everything he wants.
Bombshell: I would say, her ability to be “lucky”? Sometimes I think about how lucky she is to have been rescued from a Korean meat farm, fly thousands of miles to be adopted to a loving home where she gets all the treats, cuddles, and even her own room. But we are also very lucky to have her in our lives. We love her more than anything in this world and we hope to give her the best life she deserves.
Why does your pet love Caring Hands Animal Hospital?
Tank: Tank loves Caring Hands because you guys are very professional, caring, and loving. Tank worried a lot when Bombshell was terribly in pain earlier this year due to a very bad skin issue. And I am sure he appreciated how Caring Hands made her all better.
Bombshell: Bombshell went to Caring Hands from the very beginning when we adopted her. She was in a lot of pain earlier this year due to a terrible hot spot but Caring Hands took care of her and she has fully recovered since then. She is not the easiest to deal with when it comes to veterinary care but the Caring Hands always figures out the way.
