According to Friday's Click 2 Houston News, a dog who was dumped at a Yonkers, N.Y., animal control when she was just a puppy, is still without a home, seven years later.

Tanya, a mastiff mix, is now pushing eight years of age, and since the time that she was just six-months-old, she has not had a family of her own. Mr. Bones & Company, a non-profit animal welfare agency in New York City, is working hard to change that for this special dog.

Mr. Bones & Company posted the following words of hope for Tanya on their Facebook page on Thursday afternoon:

The fantastic Meridith Vallillio, owner of CT K9 Services has provided Tanya with an excellent skill set for life. Tanya is beautifully trained and almost ready to go home, once and for all we can't wait to see how this epic journey ends! Tanya will turn eight years old later this Summer. It's her turn so please share far and wide. WE ARE MR. BONES & CO. AND WE DO NOT GIVE UP!

Tanya is described as "incredibly gentle" and affectionate with people. Not only is she house-trained, but she is currently going through obedience training as well. Tanya's perfect home will include a guardian with previous dog experience, and no other pets.

You can help Tanya find her forever family by sharing her information. Click here for email contact and more information about this lovely dog.
