Master Tank, a St. Bernard, and Nila, a shepard mix, both were survivors of Hurricane Katrina. When their family had to evacuate because their house was destroyed, Master Tank and Nila were left at a shelter. When the two were not immediately reclaimed by their family, they were put up for adoption at a nearby shelter and were adopted into two separate families.
Master Tank and Nila’s family eventually found out where both of their dogs went to and sued to have their dogs returned back to them. Both of the new dog owners were not ready to give up their newly adopted dogs without a fight and a trial would have been in July. On Tuesday, Master Tank’s new owner visited his home in Louisiana and met the family and decided to give back the dog, and she will still be able to visit Master Tank. Nila’s new owner also agreed to return her back to her home also.
